A little creative inking goes a long way when building up beautiful backgrounds on cards
Create fab wintry night-sky backgrounds with our top inking ideas
Come Christmas Eve, little eyes turn skywards to try and catch a glimpse of Santa and his sleigh making tracks through the crisp winter air. Whether or not St Nick and his reindeer pals are spotted, a starry, moonlit sky over a snow-topped town is a beautiful scene to behold, and one that Julie Gibbs has stunningly replicated with her clever inking and die-cutting combinations. Using inks is a fabulous way to add colour and contrast to backgrounds and, as you’re unlikely to get the same look twice, you can create a truly bespoke design. Blend, brayer, stencil and stamp with your favourite tones for fab effects.
