Most of us have heard of the Aurora Borealis, The Northern Lights. But did you know that the same phenomenon happens at the South Pole as well??? The Aurora Australis, The Southern Lights, was the inspiration for this card.
To make this card, I started with the June 2020 My Monthly Hero card kit from Hero Arts. I love their kits because they are chock full of great products that can be yours at a fantastic price. The June Kit had the theme of Northern Lights and included several amazing dies. For this card, I used the forest and mountain scenery dies from the set. They span across the full length of an A2 card (5 1/2″) but I decided to alter the cuts to create the scene I was going for.
What really makes this card come to life is the background. I found a picture on the internet and used it as my inspiration for the colors. The Aurora Australis make the sky glow at night so that is the look I was going for. I used Distress Oxides for the very first time to color the background. I created a glowing sky and a lake that reflected it. I finished off the card with a white heat embossed sentiment and star from the stamp set.
This card is one of my most favorites I’ve created. I learned something new when looking for inspiration and I feel in love with Distress Oxide Inks. I hope you like it as well. Enjoy!
