Technique Squad Blog Hop – Northern Lights

I find this a challenging and messy technique. My fingers are covered in Night of Navy ink. Last month I did this technique using blending brushes, but this time I’m using sponges (I prefer the control I can get with sponges). I really like using the Shimmery White cardstock for blending because the coating on it helps and the shimmer looks like stars.

I watch LeeAnn Greff’s video for my inspiration to create the background today. I like how she suggested adding the Night of Navy ink between the other colors. My background was created using Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, and Night of Navy inks. For the second card, I used Mossy Meadow ink to darken the trees more.

I also included a picture of my cardstock before I added the Night of Navy ink.

This is the type of sponge I use. I cut it into 6 pieces and attach a piece of cardstock with label. You can find them at your local craft store.
