Saturday morning means
Today I was inspired by a few challenges and ended up with a night sky and northern lights. I seem to be on a night sky inspiration streak after my night sky and feathers card yesterday. My first inspiration was the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. I was also inspired by the colours over at The Friday Mashup, and thought they would be perfect for some Northern lights. I was also inspired by the Silhouette theme over at House of Cards, and the 'No White Paper' theme over at Shopping Our Stash. Last, but certainly not least I'm playing along with the fabulous Darnell's 6th NBUS challenge. My NBUS is the lovely Tree Silhouettes stamp set from STAMPlorations.
I started by inking some Neenah Solar card in Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers, Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry. Then I added Black Soot ink to create the night sky. I used a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die to cut the background. Next, I stamped the pretty Tree Silhouettes in black to the bottom of the night sky. Last, I die cut some vellum using the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Border dies, stamped a sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed in white embossing powder. As a last touch, I added some start with a white gel pen, and a few rhinestones, and attached everything to black card.
