sketch challenge

Hello there. This topper is one I've been wanting to create for ages. 
This time I have really cut it fine for this challenge. So I'd better stop waffling and get on with it.

The challenge was to create a card following the sketch below.

So I prepared main topper first. I stamped images, that are all from IndigoBlu, on acetate. I heat set them as I used heat resistant acetate and stuck it on a double sided sheet of adhesive. I cut a circle from the backing and stuck it back down again. I used distress glitters to colour the moon, rock candy and pumice stone for clouds. I lifted rest of backing off and filled in the rest of the sky using blues.

Next I created the other panel of card. I stamped it all over with small Christmas imges using Adirondak snowcap white. Then I put thin double sided tape all around and glittered it with a mixture of all the glitters that I had used on topper.

The base card is A5 linen card that i brushed with distressed inks. I stuck black card down and then the silver ribbon. Finally I added the topper which I lifted on foam pads.

As usual I do hope you like my make, Theresa xx
