LDS Challenge: Day 12 - Summer Nights

Today's design kind of builds off of the Summer Days Challenge.  I decided to do a night landscape, which plays off the daytime landscape.  I really like the dark ground and trees against a blue night sky, so that is what I attempted in my design.

I started by creating a glitter sandwich with China Glaze Ride the Waves and Deborah Lippman Today Was a Fairytale.

I added nighttime clouds by mixing Essence Black is Back and NYC French Tip White. I then sponged it on to create the clouds.

Using just Black is Back, I sponged the tree and added the rising landscape.

Topped off with 2 coats of NYC.

I love the star effect from the glitter, but I wish I would have used a darker blue.
