H2H - Out of this World

Welcome to another challenge at Heart 2 Heart! 

The theme this week is Out of this World! Close To My Heart has an awesome paper pack called Stargazer that is perfect for this challenge - but I didn't have a need for that particular paper pack so I didn't purchase it. Consequently, I had to think a little bit outside the box for this challenge. Astronauts, spaceships and other out of this world items weren't options for me. 

However, I have always loved the northern lights. They way they can light up the sky and create such gorgeous patterns and appear in various colours simply amazes me. There is a technique to create this effect on cards. I found a great tutorial on You Tube and used that. I have to credit the artist whose card I pretty well copied - her name is Debbie Henderson and the link to her video is here. I loved how she added the trees and I happened to have the same stamp... It added so much more to the card. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your Out of this World projects!
