Santa Sky

The OCCC challenge to use silhouette’s inspired this creation. I don’t use a lot of DP but have been trying to get better at that. I often find, as in this case, that I just couldn’t leave this DP alone and had to stamp on it too!

For the main image: I first punched a circle out of a post it. I used the outside piece as a mask to sponge my moon in Soft Sky. Then I used the inside of piece of the punch (the actual circle) to mask the moon while I sponged Blue Bayou around. I kind of kept an angle from the upper left to the lower right and sponged Night of Navy down from there. I used Blue Bayou to again to blend in the line between those two colors. A little black in the lower left corner and a little more Blue Bayou in the upper right and I was done with the basics. I stamped the trees in Night of Navy and then Basic Black. I added a little white Prismacolor pencil to the right side of each tree to help them “pop”. I stamped Santa in black and added a little white gel pen to the right sides of this image as well. Finally the sentiment was stamped in Whisper White.

Oh, how I wish I could take a great picture! This card is so cool IRL (in real life!).

I don't know about IRL, but to me it looks STUNNING on the web. Great job! You are such an inspiration!
