AAA Cards Challenge #54

Morning blog buddies, I'm here with details of our last challenge
before Christmas over at AAA Cards and the theme for this one is
 'Silent Night, Holy Night' ... you can't get more festive than that!

I've created a night-time sky with distress inks before stamping
my favourite tree stamp - can't remember where it's from as it's been in
my stash forever and it's one of the only wooden stamps I use!
The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers and to add some extra festive snowy 
detail to my sky I've flicked and spritzed a mixture of water and perfect pearls, 
left it to sit for about 20 seconds then blotted it with a paper towel. 
I seem to have had a weekend of snowy cards so it would be wrong not to 
 link this one up at Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge too: 'Let it Snow' 
Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog
... and it's another inky blend, favourite technique of mine so I'll hop over to
Happy Little Stampers - CAS challenge too!
Here's our inspiration photo below and before you race off 
to your craft rooms please check out the main AAA Cards blog 
where my teamies have created some fabulous cards.

Thanks as always for stopping by and we'll be back with more 
challenges in the New Year.

  4. Sarah, this is gorgeous. Beautiful sky you've created and I so love the idea of mixing the water and perfect pearls for the snow. I have to try that. I think that stamp is called "Lovely As A Tree". Is it from Stamping' Up? I still have mine too. Beautiful, beautiful work as always.
