Live To Ride Santa

We have a few Harley Davidson Biker Friends and so I decided this year to use these retired sets to make a scene. I actually made a couple of these cards to send out! Both retired sets used on this card are called Winter Wonderland (03') and Cruisin' Christmas (04')
~White CS base, Night of Navy CS and Shimmery White CS
~Basic Black Pad, Baja Pad, Night of Navy Pad, So Saffron Pad, Sahara Pad, Markers, Sponge, Smooch Accent ink in Moonlight, Silver and Top Coat, Crystal effects, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, 1" Circle Punch, Water color brush, Post-it notes for masking and Stipple brushes!

I stamped the images first. (The House Top Stamp at the bottom has snow flakes on the stamp, however I cut them off when I mounted my stamp) I punched out a Post-it circle and placed it at the top for the moon. I then used stamped cut out masks on post-its over the santa and house top images.Using a stipple brush, I applied Baja ink first then Night of Navy ink. Then used a sponge with Night of Navy ink around the edges of the panel to darken. Then removed the masks and colored the images with markers and watercolor brush and inks from the markers. Sponged the moon with Sahara and added some More Mustard marker to it. I applied the smooch to enhance the snow and bike trail then applied the glitter last.
