Winter Storm Watch For Santa, CCCC 57

My creation for Stacey Schafer's Stamping Stage Curtain Color Call Challenge Act 57. To be honest I was a little intimidated by this color combo but once I got rolling with the sponging you just never know what will appear. I had a Holiday/Winter/Vintage theme in mind and was anxious to use my favorite SU stamp set Lovely as a Tree. I started out first by masking the moon along with shading with Temping Turquoise around the circle post it note as your mask. Sponging all around in a circular motion adding Basic Gray for a dark cloudy, glazed effect. Using a torn posted note to create depth for my hills. The back ground trees were stamped off, than stamped on with Chocolate Chip. Sprinkled a few adhesive pearls through out the sky. My goal was to get a “Brrr” style effect. I'm please with the outcome and I'd would be very thankful to be selected for the "Lead" Curtain Call Challenge (giggle).
