In trying out my new Yasutomo mineral paper I created this background. First I inked it completely with various blues and then I added the look of the Aurora Borealis with other inks and by swiping. Using a star stencil, made by my stamping buddy Bonnie, and a squeezed out baby wipe, I placed the stencil and basically wiped off the colour through the stencil. When it was completely dry I mounted it on top of the blue foil and added it to the card front. The birch trees were cut from a distressed foil piece I made a few weeks ago and after adding some dimensionals in strategic places I added it to the side. I let it sit for a day or two because I wasn’t sure which direction I wanted to go next. After some thinking and going through my stamps I decided on adding some falling stars and I stamped these with a set from GKD called All Stars. I added some shine with opal blaze and then added some Nuvo Chrystal drops to the top. I pierced each star to make a hole and added some gold cord through the holes to make them seem as if they are falling out of the tree. Sentiment is from same set and I fussy cut the words to make them fit on the tree. They also have some sparkle and dimension. I figure this card could qualify as a Christmas card so it will get added to that small stash.
