Next, I took colorless blender and put it on a small piece of terry cloth cut from an old towel. I dabbed the towel all over the background to create even more light and dark areas. This way, I think the background doesn't have to be colored evenly and still gives a great effect. I think it looks like the night sky with snow falling in the background.
Here's my finished card. I used Y28 to color most of the sleigh. I really like this marker as it gives a really gold color. I added a flower with a gear center for my slightly Steampunk Christmas card.
