Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve is here.
Soon, we will be seeing shadows of Santa's sleigh in the sky!  

Posting a few last cards that I made.  This one has a shadow-looking background.
 I began by masking my white cardstock then inked the Hero Arts stamp with Grey Memento ink, stamped off and then onto my cardstock.  It gave me a faint, pretty background that I could stamp over top of.  Next, I got out my Misti and stamped the sentiment.  Using my Misti again, I coloured the snowflake with Memento markers, stamped then coloured with the dark blue onto the stamp, sprayed with water to blend the colours and stamped again over the light blue.
The finishing touch was a shiny blue jewel added to the center of the snowflake.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

That gray stamped background is so interesting, Karen, and looks great with the bright blue snowflake.
