Gingersnaps Starry Skies

There are challenges around at the moment that have really got my juices flowing there is quite a list of projects beside me.   Will keep me occupied while I wait for the results of Thursday's interview.

Gingersnap Creations have designated December as Holiday Lights Month.   The first challenge of the month is Starry skies.   It took me minutes to visualize my card!    Glossy card stamped with the starry sky in Dazzle Versamark and then Nick Bantock inks blended over the top of the card and a window shaped stencil.   The darker the ink became the clearer the heavenly bodies.   Onto plain white cardstock some papermaina Christmas printed vellum.   Rogue Redhead stamp of a girl reading has been brought indoors and the tree became a curtain, and the root mound below a cushion to sit on.   The girl's dress is from an old dp pack the rest of her and her book coloured with ProMarkers.

Not perfect by far but I'm still pleased with how it came out.

Divas by design have an Anything Goes Challenge this time guess this fits!
Paper take Weekly also have any Anything Goes Challenge with the optional extra of something dangly
