Glowing Lights Technique
Super quick post here! I wanted to show you a technique I recently picked up from SplitcoastStampers. It's called the Glowing Light technique. I wanted to make up a couple more cards using this technique, but honestly just can't get to it at the moment. I pretty much repeated what they did to save myself time.
Here's what I used:
Chalk (You know ~ the ones everyone bought way back and still have!)
White Gel Pen
I cut some triangles out of green paper freehand
Use a good gel pen to make circles on the triangles
Take your chalk (I'm sure you all have some) and with a Q-tip circle over the little white gel pen circles extending a bit beyond the white.
I used the gel pen to dot on some garland.
If I had made more cards, I would have considered:
Christmas lights on a house and some little trees out front.
A lantern with a glowing light or streetlights.
An apartment building with lights.
What a fun technique, thanks to Gregzgurl on Splitcoaststampers!
I will be back soon with a few more Christmas cards using my images.
Have a great day!
