We Three Kings Luminary


This is my attempt at a luminary that I found from Mel over at Mel Stampz. Here is the Tutorial for the original design :) I chose to use my Our Daily Bread Designs set called We Three Kings because it casts such a beautiful silhouette when it is cast with lighting behind it :)


The Wise Men have been watercoloured with re-inkers and the background vellum has been sponged with classic inks, pierced and highlighted with my Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen. The star has been stamped on vellum, coloured with markers and secured with crystal effects.

I highly recommend trying one of these because they are breath taking when lite up from behind - just to be on the safe side I recommend one of the battery powered tea lights so that you don't create a fire hazard! This luminary also folds up beautifully and would make a lovely gift for someone :)
