For my card I started by creating a night sky. I did this by using watercolour paper. I taped it down to a flat surface. I wet the paper using a wide paint brush, then using a round brush added various random spots of colour – yellow, pink, orange, blue, purple. Once dry, I added the top with black leaving bits of the colour to peek through. I left it dry again, then splattered white ink to act as stars. I used Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. Next I coloured a Bugaboo stamp*, called “WRF Up”  *this stamp has been discontinued. Bugaboo added new stamps monthly, and several times a year discontinue older images. Check out their site, and sign up for their weekly newsletter! I fussy cut him out and added him to my night sky. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

For my card, I used a “retired” Bugaboo stamp called Santa Ornament. I used a star filled patterned paper for my background. I drew three strings to hold the ornaments using a silver pen. One ornament is a sticker by Kaisercraft and the other is a sentiment sticker also from Kaisercraft, The third ornament is the digi stamp that I coloured using my Derwent Inktense Watercolour pencils. I fussy cut him out and adhered it to the card.
