The sky was inked with black soot distress ink, I used a mask in the moon area, I then removed the mask and inked this area with mustard seed distress ink. I then stamped the moon with grey distress ink. I then stamped the small trees using the mask that I made for the snow  with black onyx versafine ink. The grass was also stamped with black onyx versafine, using first and second image. The leaves were stamped with black onyx versafine then highlighted with white pen. The stars were stamped with hickory smoke distress ink. 


I made my second card along the same lines as the first, this was made for the November Hochanda show. Sharing again as it is Christmas based. 

The sky was inked with black soot distress ink, I used a mask in the moon area, I then removed the mask and inked this area with mustard seed distress ink. I then stamped the moon with peanut brittle memento ink. I used just the tip of the new tree inked with Spanish olive memento ink. The verse and buttercups were inked with London fog memento ink. The buttercups in the forefront, the reindeer and willow, were stamped with black onyx versafine. The stars were stamped with silver memento ink.

Here are a few more Christmas based cards made in the last few weeks.
