Northern - accidental lights

Tim Holtz Distress Oxides
I was playing about with my Distress oxides - and was making a smooching mess but once the card stock was dry I was left with some amazing backgrounds .I put some oxides around the edges - Was trying to define the top and bottom but in my haste I stamped the trees in the sky - so the sky ended more green than I intended BUT like all happy accidents the end result was the "northern lights effect". Very happy I was too .Hope you like it

Happy Christmas one and all 🎄🎄🎄

the colours used Twisted Citron ,Wilted Violet ,Mermaid Lagoon ,Mowed Lawn and Faded Jeans

I will enter this card in Muse:Christmas Visions and Casology Wk323 North
