I love the sky at night in Winter! Apart from Christmas, it's probably the best thing about this season. If it's a clear night the Winter constellations are easy to identify, and are amongst my favourites to gaze at - whilst wrapped up warm of course!
It was probably all that I had in mind when I was putting together the final card for the blog this year, reaching for the Lawn Fawn Winter Skies stamp set to create a festive card fit for the season:
I started by stamping my cute fox couple using Versafine Onyx Black ink, so I could get the position for the other elements. I then tore a strip of washi tape and placed that on my card base to form a mask for my craggy snowy landscape. I blended a number of different inks to create my night sky then splattered on water droplets and some mists to create my starry backdrop.
I coloured my foxes using colouring pencils. No fancy blending this time, but I think that adds to the charm of the scene! I wanted my cute couple to catch a glimpse of something magical in the night sky, so I stamped Santa and his reindeer-pulled sleigh using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Finally, I heat embossed my sentiment, stamping it using my Versamark inkpad. My sentiment comes from the Mice On Ice stamp set which is currently out of stock (dotted the 'j' with one of the stars from the Winter Skies set though!), but the Lawn Fawn Winter Scripty Sentiments stamp set is still on the shelves and has a lot of great alternatives in that same whimsical font!
That about wraps it up for the blog this year, and Seven Hills Crafts will be back in 202 with loads of awesome goodies and inspiration for you all to enjoy! For me though, this marks my final card for the Design Team as I'm stepping down and away from the crafty side of life. I've had the most amazing time representing Seven Hills Crafts and would like to thank Tara and the team for all their support and love while I've been on the team. I'll continue to remain a loyal customer though as really where else can you go to that is so awesome for all your crafty needs?!
Finally, thank you to all those that visit the blog and have commented on my creations over the years. I've cherished every comment more than you can know. So, for the final time... I'd love to hear what you think of this creation. Is there someone you know who'd love to receive it?
Thanks for stopping by, and wishing you all the best for a wonderful Christmas and New Year,
