One of the items on my Bucket List is to see the Northern Lights in person. I have watched videos and seen pictures, but I am sure they are nothing compared to experiencing this awesome event in person. These cards try to capture some of that wonder. They are easy to create with a few swipes of a sponge in different colors. I hope you will try to create your own unique Northern Lights card.

There are many videos on YouTube that show you different ways to create the Northern Lights effect. Every card comes out differently. I used a stamping sponge to swipe the different inks (Crushed Curry, Emerald Envy, Rich Razzleberry) across the whisper white mat. Then I filled in the empty spaces with the Night of Navy ink. As you can see all three cards are very different depending on how I sponged the ‘Northern light’ inks.
