Northern Lights/Make a Wish

I love, love, love this card!!!  This is a really cool technique that Richard showed us.  It is really awesome.   (I just have to say that Richard and the whole FSJ crew are amazing  – they are always sharing new and exciting techniques with us.  I just love that).

Ok, now back to the card.  I like our Sour Lemon cardstock.  It is bright and cheerful.  I do use it but it is not one of my go to colors, until now.  Hold on to your hats and check this out.

Prepare to be amazed at what this piece of Sour Lemon cardstock turns into

First you start out with a piece of Sour Lemon cardstock (CS-0126).  Then using the following ink pads Electric Lime (IP-0112), Cosmic Grape (IP-0111), and Turbo Teal (IP-0116) you apply color with a Dauber (TO-0138) in random spots in a circular motion onto the Sour Lemon piece. Be sure to leave some spots of the Sour Lemon cardstock showing.

It doesn’t look like much but hold on.

You then apply Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) or Denim Days (IP-0010) using a dauber starting on the outside edge of the card and working your way in.  You want lighter and darker areas.

Don’t panic, it gets better.

I then took the Stay Wild ATS (AT-0207) and inked it up with Black Licorice ink and stamped just the upper portion of the stamp onto the card front.  I used our Silver  Ink (IP-0107) to ink up the Starry Night Stamp (SS-0357) and then finally the Make a Wish sentiment from Dandelion Wishes (SS-0497) was embossed using White Embossing Powder (IP-0098).

Complete WOW card, right!!!  Love it!!!

I adhered this panel to a Black Licorice card base.

This is such a cool technique I really hope you try it.  It really makes for a beautiful card.  Every card you make will be different.  Try different colors than the ones I used and see what awesome creations you make.

This is definitely a WOW card.

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

Happy Crafting!!
