Northern Lights Lovely as a Tree, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

Don’t you just love this beauty? It was so super fun to create and I guarantee it will be a one of a kind masterpiece your friends will be so happy to receive!

This technique and color scheme was given to me by a Facebook Live viewer Breina, so we have her to thank for this  bit of awesomeness.

There are only three colors, four if you count black, but the colors Blends to make so many others it looks like a lot of white to but is really quite simple.

You’ll want to heat emboss the Trees from Lovely as a Tree in White Emboss powder onto a 4″ by 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White. Then starting lightest to darkest you’ll add in colors with your sponge daubers.

I used Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Berry Burst and then added in Archival Black ink.

You can create a mask with paper or post it notes if you want more defined edges and you can also add Black inbetween colors if you have any to keep them more concentrated in hue.

I love the way the card turned out even though I have seen a ton of these in example and I really was a bit leery when I was making it.

When you take a step back and let it dry and attach it to a base, I think you will swoon too!!

 

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty
