Born Again

Hello.  Welcome.  This is one of the UFO's I produced yesterday.  I made a background using a homemade circle mask and sponged on various blue distress inks

Then I came to a halt.  But today, on reflection, I had an idea.....

I took a piece of the background, cut it into three, mounted on a dark blue base and added a nutcracker from Mark's Finest Papers Nutcracker stamp set.  I obviously was still stuck in purple and green land courtesy of my Promarkers.
