Fun Friday - Mountain Air Bundle (#153820)


Let’s have fun with the Northern Lights Technique and the Mountain Air Bundle (#153820)!


This week only...
Purchase this Mountain Air Bundle (#153820) or place an order of $70+, and I will send you a FREE Classic Ink pad colour of your choice!



Today’s purpose...
Let's have fun trying out a new technique!  I think these cards are great for those family members who are far away, or for our new normal of social distancing.

Technique...
The Mountain Air Bundle (#153820) was made for the Northern Lights technique.  Watch as I show different ways to create a beautiful scene with a starry sky!

The Cards...

Card 1
Emboss the sentiment onto the white cardstock first.  Then start adding the four bright colours over top.  Make sure the colors are extremely bright and not faint.  Try to make "cloud blobs" as opposed to "snakes".  It looks more natural.  When going over top with Night of Navy, start out at the edges first and then close into the center.  Wipe off your embossed sentiment with a tissue to get any excess ink off and to make the white brighter.


 



The Measurements...
Card Base - Basic Black Cardstock - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, folded in half
Front Layer - Rococo Rose Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4

Front Layer - Whisper White Cardstock - 3 7/8 x 5 1/8

Card 2

I decided to try out some different ink colors and to emboss the detailed mountain image with black embossing powder.  Instead of the usual Night of Navy colour that I use to blend the sky, I decided to try Blackberry Bliss.  I LOVE the look of it, however, the white embossed words became stained and weren't a crisp white like I had hoped.  Therefore, I re-embossed the words onto Basic Black and put it on the card with dimensionals.
