Northern Lights WOW Card and Video

Hello My Friends

Many of you may have seen the Northern Lights technique before - and you might even have re-created it yourself.  But man oh man, look at the way you can take a beautiful Northern Lights card to new levels of gorgeousness!
Yellow/Green/Blue Northern Lights

Blue/Pink Northern Lights

I sponged ink onto the sky to create the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) effect.  Since the Northern Lights can appear in virtually any colour, there are no rules about what colours to use.  However, I have most commonly seen the Green/Yellow/Blue variety and the Pink/Blue variety are also often seen here in Canada so...that's what I went with here.  (Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Cucumber Crush for the Green/Yellow sky; Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky for the Pastel sky).

I stamped the Wonderland Pine tree image below using the Archival Black ink, and  sponged Night of Navy ink to make sure everyone knows it is night-time.  A few gel pen stars and voila - a beautiful Northern Lights card. 

Shimmery Northern Lights with Lovely As a Tree

Stopping now means you have a beautiful card.  But why not make it absolutely STUNNING?!!

It's as easy as covering the card with versamark and Iridescent Ice embossing powder, then heat-setting the iridescent Ice.  

No.  Really.  It really *IS* that simple.

Watch the video below and I will show you exactly how.

Northern Lights cards are always gorgeous.  But the glimmer from Iridescent Ice makes them drop-dead-spectacular wow!  

Go ahead.  Try it for yourself.

Have a spectacular day my friends.  Enjoy my video.  And God Bless,   ~Cynthia     <><
