Christmas wishes

Hello there. So finally I have hacked into some stamps that I bought a few months ago. I have now opened the second set and used all that set today and made 3 toppers. This was one of them.

I started with a piece of white Sheena stamping card. I then stamped the silhouette images and star in black archival and clear embossed them.

Next i got out the aqua tints. They were one of my purchases from the NEC last week. And i'm so pleased I got them.
I used a yellow, an orange and a red to create both the sand dunes and the sky.

Then I faux bleached the star with water and added clear wink of stella to it for some subtle bling.
I then stamped the sentiment in black archival.
All the stamps used are from the Sheena Douglass range.
Then I went round the edge with hickory smoke distress ink. I matted on black and stuck it to ivory base card.
And voila' one Christmas card in non traditional colours, Theresa xx
