Starry Night

Good Morning.
Today, I am playing with a new die from Penny Black, some Yupo paper and alcohol inks.

So here's what I did.
I began by added some Ranger Alcohol inks onto my piece of Yupo paper.  Love how the inks move and react on the Yupo, such a unique paper.
When it was dry, I used some Ranger Blending Solution and a piece of drywall tape to stencil in the background.  I like the look it gave and the extra interest it added.
I used some Inka Gold diluted with water and flicked that onto the background with a paintbrush to look like little star.
This adorable little die from Penny Black is called Winter Village.  I die-cut it onto white and mounted it over the inky Yupo.  I stamped the sentiment from the new Love and Peace sentiment set then I framed the whole thing up and pop dotted it onto my card front.


Feeling happy to have another holiday card made.
Thanks so much for coming over to take a look.

A really lovely card - great background (and explanation) also the die is perfect. Apologies for my lack of comments recently - been having broadband speed problems which made everything online seem like hard work

I always enjoy that subtle mesh look that drywall tape gives on your project, such a neat touch. This is a very nice card.

This white silhouette die cut scene goes beautifully over the alcohol ink sky Karen, which looks great with the dry wall stencilling and the splatters of gold. x

I love this card and your background is awesome. I made a similar card with a different village die but my background was completely different.
