Northern Lights Card


Hi bloggers!  I just love doing cards with a Northern Lights sort of technique.  I have used the Lustre Polishes to create today's card and I love the way it looks!  I think this would be quite an easy one to do for batch cards too!


























The finished dimensions are 7" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue
Oh that ‘Northern Lights’ technique is such a joy to behold. I remember you creating this kind of background with the Colour Clouds but you have just ramped things up by using the Lustre Polishes. FAB-YOO-LUSS!!!
Look forward to watching you create this masterpiece later x
Happy Tuesday everyone x

Morning Sue,
I agree with everyone, the Northern Lights background is stunning.
I started making my Christmas cards yesterday and there is glitter and bits of paper and card everywhere,but not one finished. Maybe today. Like your card so might give it a go with different trees as I don't have these. Hugs xx Pauline
