Whimsy Inspiration - Christmas Scene Builder

Hi Everyone!
I have some Whimsy inspiration to share with you today!

For this card I inked up the new 'Christmas Scene Builder' set by SC Designs, available at the Whimsy Stamps store.

 
I had a lot of fun creating this scene as I've never attempted a night sky before. I sponged it using several different colours of Memento Dew Drops, and using post it notes to mask for the snow and moon.
 
I then stamped the images directly onto the card (masking a bit in front of the trees to look like snow drifts). I added some snow with a Signo white pigment pen.

 
I framed the scene with dark blue cardstock, then white, and a final layer of dark blue, before mounting onto a white card base.


Hope you like it!

What a stunner for a first 'scene' card. This is so beautiful Shannah - well done! What really finishes it is the way you have matted it onto the layers.
