Today I’m sharing a card showing you a fun way to create a northern lights effect with ink blending and embossing resist!
I also have a video for this card that you can watch below or over at my Youtube channel:
First I blended a variety of inks onto strathmore bristol cardstock. I used Blue Raspberry, Grape Slush, Pool Party, and Berry Smoothie reactive inks on the sky and Tumbled Glass and Broken China distress oxide ink on the water. Next I heat-embossed the background stamp onto the panel with clear embossing powder. Then I came back and blended more ink across the panel! I used the same colors on the sky but also added Chipped Sapphire distress oxide ink and Intens-ified Black ink. On the water I added Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire distress oxide inks. The embossing powder resists the ink so after I lightly buffed the image with a paper towel I was left with that bright and vivid design!
I decided it needed a little more sparkle so I placed the panel back in my MISTI and restamped the image with embossing ink but this time I heat-embossed it with sparkle embossing powder for a subtle extra shimmer! I die-cut the mountains and trees from silver glitter and black cardstock and adhered them together. I also stamped the whale from the kit and heat-embossed it on black cardstock with silver sparkle embossing powder before die-cutting it with the coordinating die. I adhered them to the panel with a mix of regular adhesive and foam mounting tape.
Finally I added a sentiment from the You’re My Universe add-on set and heat-embossed it on black cardstock with silver embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a thin label and adhered it to the panel with foam mounting tape to finish the card!
