Silent Night

Hello Friends,
Today's post is a card I used for a  Christmas Workshop recently with stamps from Stampin' Up's Holiday Catalogue. I did case it from Amy K here
I stamped the trees with Black Stazon, repeat stamping without inking the stamp and then sponged Soft Sky at the bottom and Night of Navy for the Sky blending with the Soft Sky in the middle.  I ripped the bottom edge and used my Aqua Painter to spread droplets of water over the sponged area.  I then stamped the stars with Craft White.  Finished off by placing the Sentiment with my stamp-a-ma-jig and attaching the Crystal.  Also stamped the trees inside and applied some light sponging.

Stamps: S/U's Wonderland, Jingle All the Way
Card: Whisper White Thick and Thin
Ink: Stazon Black, Night of Navy, Soft Sky, White Craft Ink
Finishing Touches: Crystal
Cool Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Sponges, Aqua Painter,
