Lighting The Way In The Night.

Lighting The Way In The Night for today’s share. Use the White Craft ink and the Soft Pastel for a simple technique called pastel resist for this beautiful card. 

This style of card would be great for a masculine card, to support someone in a difficult time in their life, a thank you card. I can’t think of an occasion that this style wouldn’t be appropriate. So use it for all your needs. 

How to create the pastel resist for the night light from the lantern 

In this video, I shared the pastel resist technique, how to make the window for the lantern, and how to add color to the foil paper to show a two-tone lantern. I was happy to find a way to add a window to the lantern with a 1-¼ window sheet. All is explained in the video. 

Showcase Of The Lighting The Way With The Lantern 

As mentioned, all is explained in the video, but I tried a different combination of cardstock and will list all colors below each card. For each card, the lantern is die-cut from silver foil specialty paper. In the Silver foil paper, there are three different tones of Silver. To add red or green to the Silver, I use the Stampin’ Blends. (tips in the video to color foil with blends)
