Northern Lights

After playing with my ink blending for the moon cards I decided to have a go at the Northern Nights effect I had also seen online.  Lots of ink blending, but this time with brighter colours, and toned down with blue and black on top made the background for this card.  I flicked water onto the inks to reactivate them, and then used an old dry toothbrush with acrylic paint (white) to flick a few bright stars to finish the look.

A simple stamp of a cityscape (Seattle) and label stamp for the sentiment, cut out and mounted onto foam completed the card.

I really love how this card turned out, the red is a little bright, but the city overstamped looks great.
