I don't know about you but I always used to spend ages on Christmas eve peeping through the curtains looking up at the sky for a glimpse of Santa. When I saw the challenge at Christmas Card Challenges was Twas the night before Christmas, my first thought was the excitement of watching for Santa through the window which fits perfectly with this weeks challenge from Bah Humbug which is acetate
The main image is a gorgeous digistamp from Crafts and Me called 'Stargazer', she is such a cutie with that little fairy sat on her head :-) I've coloured her with promarkers and she has a little glamour dust on her nightie (and the fairy's wings). I cut a square aperture out of a 6x6 card blank and backed it with acetate. I made the background by masking the moon and brayering the night sky with various shades of blue memento ink and also a little black to darken the edges. I stamped the Santa and Sleigh with black versafine and added the snowflakes with a white gel pen. The sentiment is computer generated.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas: N is for 'no nonsense'
Celebrate the Occasion: Christmas in July (no red)
Crafts and me: favourite stamp or image
Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight challenge: masking (I masked the moon and brayered the background over the top)
