Midnight Ride

Hello All!

Are you counting down yet?  All I want to know is 'Where is the month going???"
I have one more Christmas card to share with you and as promised last week, I am using the same stamp that I used in this post~

 I used my MISTI to get perfect placement.  I started with determining where Santa's sleigh was going to go, then I cut out a mask for the moon.  I added the mask to the appropriate place on the blank panel.  I used watercolor paper for this panel.
Next, I put my background image, Layered Swirls, in the MISTI and inked it up with a blue distress ink.  I am sorry that I do not remember the exact color, but one of the lighter blues.  Then I spritzed the image with water and stamped it on the watercolor paper.  Once dry, I inked it up a second time  with the same ink, spritzed and stamped.  I used a paint brush and water to move the ink around on the paper.
Once my sky was to my liking, I inked up the edges of the stamp in a darker blue and stamped it.  I repeated the step to get the ink to the desired dark blue color.
Once the background was done and all was dry, I determined the placement of the Santa in Moonlight stamp so that once I stamped, the outline of the moon would be over the previously masked area.  I used the MISTI so that I could ink up the stamp multiple times to get solid coverage of the image.
I added my sentiment from the Gifts of Christmas stamp set to a banner.
Snow was added using a white gel pen as well as a few die cut snow flakes.  I finished the card off with sequins and gold twine.
