Snowy night in SplodgeAway land

Hi there folks, just a quick post today as I'm having a bit of a hectic week with nothing but problems at work and I've got a horrible cold too.. Here's one of my Splodge Away samples featuring two of the new Christmas masks: Christmas Scene and Christmas Text Disc 2

I've used distress inks in shades of blue and a littlle black soot,  splattered  with some water to create the sky using the Text disc to mask the moon. I inked in the houses and with black soot and used a post it note to add the shadows.I created some little lights with a Graph'It markers. 

I used black soot DI to ink in the text and snowflakes in the moon and stamped in Santa in his sleigh. To finish off I added some snowflakes with a white gel pen
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
