Northern Lights for Sunday Stamps!

Hello, crafty friends!  We have a festive color challenge for you to play along with at Sunday Stamps! this week.
Such a fun picture! I love those little reindeer and of course that gingerbread man. So cute!  Use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice to play along.  Here's what I made using Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Suede and Real Red:

To create the background, I stamped the star images from the Star of Light stamp set randomly onto a 3 7/8" by 5 1/8" piece of Whisper White card stock using Versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  To create the "northern lights" effect, I sponged in all the different ink colors randomly using sponge daubers.  When I was finished adding ink, I used a paper towel to wipe the excess ink off  the embossed stars.

Stamping Supplies:

  • Stamps: Santa's Sleigh Bundle (143499), Star of Light (142110)
  • Paper: Whisper White, Peekaboo Peach, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede and Real Red.
  • Ink: Versamark, Peekaboo Peach, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, and Real Red.
  • Accessories: Santa's Sleigh Bundle (143499), White Embossing Powder, Sponge Daubers, Peekaboo Peach 3/8" Ruched Ribbon, Rhinestone.
