I coloured the image using my copic markers and then added in the night sky and used Sharpie Water Based Paint – White – Extra Fine Point to create the falling snow.

On the bottom of the image, I used Recollections – Christmas Noel and added some glitter to the snow while it was still wet.

On the hats, added in some glitter and tinsel from American Craft.

Outlined image, gift box and card with Pilot Silver Marker.

Sentiment is from Woodland Cottage – Scenic Stamps.

Background paper is from American Crafts – Jack Frost Paper Pad – 6 x 6 in (15.2 x 15.2 cm). Loved how the paper matched the scene so well.

Used My Creative Time -Stitched Squares Inside and Out to cut the gift box.
