One Layer Week - Starry, starry night!

Week 197
WOW what an amazing collection of Non-Traditionally coloured Christmas cards we had last week, our challenge really seemed to get your creative juices flowing!
Thank you all so much!
Now we have another 
One Layer Challenge
This week the focus of your creation is 
Starry, Starry Night!
Please remember that white space and obviously we would like to see stars somewhere!
Here are our contributions this week, although as usual you will find more examples on our personal blogs.
Thank you to all those who visited us last week, we really appreciated your comments!
Distress inked to create my skyline with stars and snowflakes
stamped and embossed with WOW metallic silver sparkle EP after masking
the top of the card with post-it tape and the base with a Memory Box
Landscape die. The sentiment is Clearly Besotted: Sweet Little Sentiments
and to finish a wrap around of navy and white twine.

Love these sheep from Inkydoodles!  White embossed with a groundline drawn in with a white pen, coloured with Inktense pencils.

This is in a very like manner to Sarah's card... strange how we think on similar lines! Here the sky was repeatedly stamped and clear embossed using a tiny Lavinia stamp, through a Post It mask, cut with a circle die. The Post It circle itself was cut with an Impression Obsession skyline die. This mask was used to allow the sky to be daubed with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink.
I used another die-cut of the same circle to draw the continuation of the circle at the base of the image with a fine Navy marker.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts!

We hope you'll have fun with this one as well as adding to your stocks of Christmas cards in readiness for the festive season.
