Wintery Night Sky

Snow will soon be flying (soooo not ready!), but it was still fun to make this card using a tutorial on the Spectrum Noir website for creating a dark night sky (click HERE for tutorial).

This rubber stamp called Vintage Lamp Post from Stampabilities was the perfect subject for a dark wintry night sky. I  followed the color sequence of the tutorial, beginning with BGR5, then TB9, TB6, TB7, and finally TB5. The remaining image was colored with Spectrum Noir markers. I topped the card off by using the Die’sire Let It Snow Edge’ables die, then added some eBrushed shading at the edge of the card and across the top using Spectrum Noir BGR5, TB6 and CT3. Full details listed below.
