I started with the piece of white card cut just about 1/2" smaller than my card and cut a mask from some copy paper using the star die. I decided the easiest way to do it was to use the positive piece to get the position of the star right on the piece of card, and just marked with pencil the points and the inner corners before stamping the trees and deer with Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. I put some colour on the trees leaving some white bits for the snow on the branches using Pine Needles Distress Ink applied with a waterbrush, and then added the sky using Salty Ocean DI and darkened around the edges with Chipped Sapphire DI, which I also used for the shading beneath the deer and under the trees. I then place the negative mask and pencilled lightly around the whole of the star and when happy I went over the lines with my 01 Black Micron Pen. I finished by adding a bit of White Sakura Pen on the branches of the trees and in the sky for a more snowy look and stamped a sentiment from the same set of stamps, again using the Nocturne Ink, and then heat embossed it using WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
