Santa Sky

I've not had much time for crafting today, but I have made a card for 2 challenges again.

First is CASE Study challenge #66 with this Kryssi Ng card for inspiration

and  second is Simply Less is More week 42 where the theme is SILHOUETTES.

This is my card

I started by printing some  Merry Christmas text background paper that I typed on my laptop, and cutting it into a square. I then placed a Post It note moon in the center of the top half of the paper, and sponged over it with some blue and black inks. When this was peeled off I was left with a white moon that showed the text still running across it. I layered this onto some black card and then a square white card. I then drew a skyline of rooftops on some black card, cut it out, and stuck it along the bottom of the sponged sky.

 I then stamped Santa and his Reindeer pulling his sleigh in black across the sky and moon.

I Versamark stamped the sentiment on the rooftops and heat embossed it with white powder. The finishing touch was the randomly placed pearly star sequins.

Recipe : Card = Basic Black and white card stock from my stash
Stamps = Clarity and Dovecraft
Inks = Basic Black, Brilliant Blue, and Versamark
Extras = Printed background paper, Sequins and white embossing powder

Thanks for looking at my blog today, and I would love it, if you have time, to leave me a comment.

I'll be back soon
