Creative Knockouts #172: Winter Wonderland!

Good morning stampers! Today I'm sharing my project for the challenge over at Creative Knockouts where the theme is....Winter Wonderland

This week's sponsor is Imagine That - Digis by Kris, and they are offering a wonderful prize to a lucky player!





Here is my project, featuring the super adorable set Tree With Presents. One of my FAVORITE things about Imagine That digis is that they come with both colored and outline versions in the bundle, and typically contain several images along with coordinating sentiments. SERIOUSLY. They are a great deal and very versatile!


Today I used the pre-colored version of this image. It's SO well done you can even see that the garland and ribbon are "sparkly"! I didn't add glitter - that's how it looks digitally colored from the shop. I love it. I had this wild & crazy vision when I saw this image. I hope I was able to fully bring it to life. That's the night sky with stars twinkling away in the background, and our lovely tree is in someone's beautiful snowy yard, and SANTA has just arrived and dropped off all the goodies! ;) 

I sponged Summer Sun craft ink on the background to create the glowing halo effect. The "stars" were created after I did the dry embossed background by mixing white ink and some water into a mini mister and spraying several times. The snowy hills are a MFT die, and I added Diamond stickles to the edges for extra sparkle. The sentiment comes with the set in the Imagine That shop, I used a Paper Smooches die to cut it out as a flag and had it hang off the edge for fun. The image was color printed, fussy-cut and put onto the finished background with foam tape.
