Night sky birthday.


Hi everyone, I had another piece of watercoloured card that I'd made using a technique 
from Heather Telford's winter wonderland course. I signed up in January 2021 and had a play earlier this year!! My how time flies!

This background used distress inks painted onto watercolour paper with lots of water.
I spattered on some diluted white gouache paint to look like snow and then sprayed it with dazzling diamonds for some shimmer.

Here's a closer look:

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Gorgeous night sky Cathy. It looks like Northern Lights to me. I love Heather's course and have done some of the lessons, but time got away from me too and it's not finished. I know have another course of her's waiting in the wings ... it's from a few months back. :) xx
