I love Island Indigo and Silver. When I saw a challenge that called for starry skies, I knew I wanted to use Island Indigo for my skies. I finally chose to make a mask giving me an arch within which I sponged the skies and then sponged a bit of Soft Sky at the bottom to give the effect of snow.
I die cut a deer so that I could use the negative space to create a silhouette against the skies. Once I had completed that and coloured it black, I used Versamark to stamp in stars, leaving the deer free of the stars. I heat embossed the stars using my Silver Embossing powder.
Finally I added my sentiment which seemed singularly appropriate. It's from Christmas Bliss---simple but so apt.
