Northern Lights Technique for Cards

Step By Step

A little while ago one of my stamping team members asked if we could do the Northern Lights Technique at Team Night, so she could learn how to do it.

You can make some pretty effective cards with this lovely technique.

Here's what I did!

Northern Lights Technique (1) (490x270)

Use the Stampin' Up! Sponge Daubers to apply Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise Inks across your Whisper White card.

Northern Lights Technique (2) (490x317)

Mask off the lovely "sky" with a piece of torn scrap paper, then sponge the whole bottom section using Night of Navy Ink, and a little Early Espresso and a little Black if you feel the need to go darker.

Northern Lights Technique (3) (490x307)

Gently start sponging some of the darkness into the sky.

Northern Lights Technique (4) (490x328)

Stamp a gorgeous silhouette image over your background - I used the ever popular "Lovely As A Tree" stamp set.

Add some white dots to the sky for stars, and layer onto your base card. I've used a thin layer of Whisper White onto a base card of Wild Wasabi. The greeting is heat embossed with white embossing powder.

So effective, don't you think?
