Today over at Just Us Girls we have a new challenge starting and the Trend Sue has chosen for us is to make a Galaxy Background or Night Sky. What a fun idea! This was something I had not done a lot of, so I enjoyed pushing my creativity. Thanks Sue!!
When putting this card together I had some complications along the way but I do believe they turned out to work in my favor. I love to do emboss resist and this is where my card began. The inspiration behind my card you can find HERE. The only thing I wish I would have managed to have done differently is make the center of my moon mostly white. That is a challenge for me, as I tend to be a heavy handed ink blender. As much as I love the Oxide Inks I am still struggling with them. The other thing that worked out well is, I couldn’t find my bottle of white paint so I decided to try Gesso for my stenciled stars. It worked, as the stars became more muted and I think it looks awesome that way. Last, I had to tilt my panel as my sentiment didn’t stamp straight. LOL
The stamps are a miss match of this and that picked up at Local Stamping stores.
Hope you will consider trying your hand at a Night or Galaxy background as well and join us over at JUGS! Nanc’
