Back to Christmas!

Evening All! 
Sorry about this, but it is back to Christmas cards again!  I must admit, I wouldn't normally start my cards quite so early, but these were the stamps I got to work with for the Clarity DT.  Don't get me wrong, I love the stamps, just a bit early for Christmas for me!
This was my favourite of the cards I did - very simple design, this time a vertical strip with the ships, and a lovely idea to make the carol music scores.  If you like the music scores, keep an eye out, I think there are more on the way....

The ships are from the repositional ship set, you get three stamps on one mount and you can reposition them as you want.
I masked off the card to leave the strip exposed, then brayered with shades of blue - going from bottom to top and getting lighter as I worked my way up the column.
I then stamped the ships in place, using darker ink at the bottom and slightly lighter shades as they got smaller.
I created a bit of shadow under each ship using one of the texture stamps from the 'making a point' set from lesson 15
Remove the mask and add the I saw three ships music score
For the finishing touch, I used a fine line pen to highlight the edges of the strip.
Thanks for stopping by
