Bethlehem Night

I've been searching for a deep navy blue inkpad to use with this stamp ('Bethlehem Night' by Stampendous) ever since I've had it. I thought I'd found it with 'Paris Dusk' by Memento...on the packaging it's a lovely dark purple/navy...but as you can see, it's not that dark once the search goes on! I used some Distress Inks to add some colour to the buildings and stars, and thought I'd turn it into a card anyway. I added a panel of navy card embossed with my Hero Arts 'Macgical' background stamp in gold behind the image, and matted everything on to gold card.
