Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #23 - Try a New Technique!

yahooo! it's time for a NEW challenge over at the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge blog!

yay!! what a fun way to push yourself to try something new!

I had so much fun creating my card for this challenge!! :)

eeeeek!! sooooo sweet, right?! I hope!!

I tried to create a Northern Lights background!! and it was also my first time using Distress Oxide Inks on black! 

I started by using a paintbrush and some black gesso! so fun!!!

then I colored in the cute little image from Upon a Star that I colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and then fussy cut out!

once the black gesso was dry, I tore a piece of typing paper and used it as a mask to create the 'northern lights'. I used a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks to swoosh along and the moved the mask down the black area.

Once that was done, I used the Snowy Backdrop die, die cut a piece of cardstock, and used the cardstock as a stencil with white embossing paste on the background! LOVE the texture it adds!

Lastly, I heat embossed the sentiment from Plane and Simple in white onto a banner of black cardstock!

oh, i really can't WAIT for you to play along! you could win a $25 gift certificate to Lawn Fawn!!!!
