Ellie here today, my turn to share a Whimsy creation with you. If you have followed our blog hop on Monday, then you might remember seeing it.
I did recreate it as I wanted to show you a few photos of how I made it, in case anyone wanted to know.
Here is a photo before I started with the masks in place (moon and snow on bottom).
With these masks in place I simply dragged my ink pads over the paper to create the sky. It helps taping it down so it doesn't move while you do this, also turn the paper upside down - this helps so you don't get too much dark ink on the bottom portion.
As you can see above, I started inking the sky, but then I remembered that it helped to have the cityscape in place before inking the sky, so I heat embossed the city using black distress ink and clear embossing powder before continuing with the sky.
I added just a little bit of yellow to this sky (I had too much of it on my first card), and also decided to add a little bit of a purple shade.
The masks are now removed . I stamped santa and his sleigh and used another mask to create some "snow".
Here is the finished card again.
