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.
