Aurora Borealis Background 2

Did you see my SAVI Sunday Episode 29 video and post from a couple days ago?  I made this really cool background mimicking the Aurora Borealis.   Be sure to check it out to see how it is done.  Such a cool affect with an easy process. 

I had a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock that I did a test on with the coloring technique.  Well, I loved how it came out so much, I could not let it go to waste so I made another card.

SAVI Sunday Epidsode 29 - Aurora Borealis Background Technique

PicsArt_09-13-05.40.33

I just love how this card turned out with the streaks of color and slight hues of Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry.  Seeing the Aurora Borealis is definitely on my Bucket list!  Do you have a bucket list?  What are some of the things you would like to see or do?

While coloring the background, it is going to look like a mess and like it does not make sense.  But trust me, just keep going and it will all come together at the end. 

Watch how I create the background in my SAVI Sunday video and then catch all card dimensions and supplies below.

More Black Ice Projects

Sometimes when I do a special technique or style of card, I just need to keep going with it!  It's like finding that perfect pair of pants and buying them in every color...LOL!  

Several weeks ago I shared my Black Ice Technique card, which turned into several more, so I have to share them with you.   Be sure to click on the bold words in the previous sentence to see my previous post too.

My first projects is using the Magnolia Lane Suite and Champagne Foil Sheets.  I also used the Everyday Label Punch for background interest.

SHIMMER PAINT-ing

SAVI Sunday - 12:  Painting with Shimmer Paint.

I saw this video a while ago and thought, hmmmm, I can probably do something similar with our Shimmer Paints.  And even though it did not go totally according to plan, I still like the outcome.  

PicsArt_04-19-06.23.21

I heat embossed the floral image from the Band Together stamp set with Gold Embossing powder on Basic Black card stock.  (full product details below).  Make sure to use your Embossing Buddy lightly on the black card stock and then stamp your image and words with Versamark.  Embossing powder will stick to the Versamark.  Use your Heat Tool to melt the powder.

I then painted on Frost White Shimmer Paint and colored over with re-inkers.  

You can see how I did this in my SAVI Sunday video:

Although I did not show in my video, the full floral bloom center is where I used Pineapple Punch re-inker.  You can use any yellow re-inker for the center, or for the other colors too.  Use your imagination and change up the color scheme. 

It sure was hard getting a good image of the shimmer and color at the same time.  You should see it in person!  WOW!

Card pieces:

  • Basic Black card base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Layer of Melon Mambo 5-1/4 x 4
  • Layer of Gold Foil 5-1/8 x 3-7/8
  • Top Basic Black is 5 x 3-3/4

I hope you enjoyed this new technique and new way to use your Shimmer Paints.
