Last weekend, after I did a good cleaning, I had some time to "play" in my craft room.
I wanted to try out a new technique I found called Northern Lights.
Now I have never personally seen Northern Lights....but I have seen pictures.
Here is my card:
Personally, I think I was too light handed with the darker blue....I think it needs to have more "darkness" but still very pretty.
I masked the bottom of the page to create a shoreline and sponged it in Smoky Slate and Marina Mist.
I removed the mask and applied colour with sponge daubers. I chose Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum, Pistachio Pudding and Soft Sky,
Then I took a sponge with Smoky Slate and Midnight Muse and applied in a circular motion.
Then I stamped the tree image from Lovely as a Tree with versamark at the shoreline. I used black embossing powder and embossed it.
The final step is to add "lights" with the white chalk maker.
I still think I need more of the Midnight Muse to block out some of the colors and give more darkness....but am afraid I am going to mess it up....so I will leave it as is.
Why don't you give this technique a try? It is messy and FUN!
