Stars Shining Bright

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.

    1. Thank you so much, Anne. This is the card that almost didn't make it. I had completed it and photographed it when I suddenly had to go out of town. I returned home just as I had about ten minutes left. Talk about a race against time!
