Northern Lights Owls

Hi guys,

The technique in focus on my facebook group for this month is Northern Lights, and can be found here. Unfortunately I only have a square blending pad, so it started off looking a little funny:

 I started off with a pale yellow distressed ink in patches along the base of the card.

 I then added some orange in between the yellow patches.

Next I layered a turquoise and a blue around the yellow and orange. Finally I added some purple around the edges where I wanted the darker colours. The next step was to add the black, which I used a bath sponge for, in order to smooth the transitions between the colours.

Finally I added a stamped sentiment to the lighter area. The topper is a Limited Runs image from the current progressive challenge which I coloured using Papermania watercolour pens. I took some leaf dies and added PVA to them, and then sprinkled large black glitter onto this.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday - Make your own background
citycrafter #437 Woodland animals
ATSM #317 Make your mark
polkadoodles wk 45 Create a scene
inkspirational #173 Photo inspiration
AYLI - Rainbow or Monochrome - I do find it difficult to use ony a single colour, although it does look so stylish. However for the Northern Lights technique it is impossible to be monochrome.

I also have an update on my rabbit cross stitch for you all:
Thanks for looking,
