I'm making a lot of cards for a fund raiser for a therapeutic horse-riding organization I volunteer with - their acronym is STARS so I'm trying to do lots of cards with star themes. That's why you've already seen a few Christmas cards from me using the discontinued Star Santa stamp which wonderful SCS member, Lyndie, gave to me when I was searching for it.
I stamped and heat embossed the image on watercolour paper, then painted it with Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils. I used the lightest yellow pencil to give a yellow haze all around the Santa and the stars to try and capture the light coming off the stars. I bordered the image with glittery gold cs, then mounted it on the background dp.
