Just Us Girls Challenge #573 - Photo Inspiration

The Northern lights are totally on my bucket list to go to see them! The photos I see are just incredible! (You can see what I am talking about HERE)  Since I can't go NOW, I enjoyed making a card inspired by them~

I started with swiping on greens, blues, and some purple, and then swiped black.  I used a torn  template, and sponged on thick black for the hill, and then stamped the tree images using Versafine Black ink - a totally black, black ink [that I adore!].  I splatted on some watered down white paint for the snow, and added a white embossed sentiment.
 
I am loving this card!
 

Your turn.  I hope you join in, making a Northern Lights card is really fun.  Not inspired by that, but just the colors?  Go for it!  See you over at the Just Us Girls Challenge #573~



Thanks for stopping by~

Such a cool background! I never thought of just swiping the ink with the ink pad. Love the scene you created too!
