Journey to the Stars

Hello All,

Tonight I am playing along with Double DTuesday Throwdown, and Fusion Challenges. Two out three challenges deal with one of my very favorite subjects, space! So, without further ado, here is my card for today, enjoy!

Lots of colors are found in space. So why should my card be any different?
The technique to achieve this look is quite easy. Paint your colors and then dab a bit of the color off the paper. While everything is still wet start to dab in black watercolor.
The result is out of this world! (don't mind the pun! ­čśë)
After the panel was dry it was time to splatter some stars into our universe.
I simply diluted white acrylic paint and gently flicked the brush with my finger.
This created a wonderful starry scene.
I die-cut the 'happy' sentiment from the original watercolored panel.
The lower sentiment was embossed in silver glitter powder.
 Challenges Entered:
Fusion: Galaxy
Double D Challenges: The Moon and/or Stars
Tuesday Throwdown: #407- Splatter It

 Grab Our Button

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.
