I purchased this image last year and thought it was the perfect time to "get it dirty"! First I created my A-6 size base card from Whisper White cardstock and stamped it using Soft Sky blue SU ink and AMuse snowflake stamp to create my background.
For my main image panel, I stamped this Serendipity image onto Whisper White cardstock with Versafine black ink. Punching a circle with my Creative Memories circle punch, I adhered it temporarily to create a moon in the sky. Then using a sponge applicator, I swiped back & forth using 1st - soft sky ink, 2nd - not quite navy ink and 3rd - versafine black ink. Removed my circle piece and there was a MOON in the evening SKY. Next I used green & brown Prisma pencils to do a little coloring on the trees and buildings. Lastly, I dabbed over the sky and the building roofs with a Quickie Glue pen and Prisma Glitter.
For added sparkle, I used red-line sticky tape on the top & bottom of the base card and added PKGlitz "meadow green" gliter glitz. (sorry it looks black in the photo) My ribbon is by Offray, purchased as Michael's last holiday season and the bow was created with the "Bow Easy" which I purchased from Sharon Johnson's Store. For the sentiment I used "Happy Holidays" which comes from the Stampin' Up "Frosty" set.
