I am a little bit late to the party but I made my very first galaxy background. I always thought it looked so difficult to create these backgrounds but I realized it is quite easy! But I am will start at the beginning of this card!
When I set my eyes on this super cute and adorable set by Reverse Confetti called Moon Men for the first time I fell in love instantly. These astronauts are just too awesome to resist.
I started by stamping both of them and a planet, coloured them with alcohol markers and fussy cut them out (there are coordinating dies available, too).
Now onto the former mentioned background: All I did was blending some ink onto a stripe of watercolour cardstock in various bright colours: pink, violett, turquoise and yellow. When all the paper was covered, I added also some black ink but still letting peeking through some of the colours in certain areas. I am honest: After this step it looked awful. But then I spritzed some water droplets on it and dabbed it away with a paper towel, Then I also sprinkled some white acrylic paint mixed with water on it to create the stars. And I have to say after that I really liked the result.
All there was left to do was to stamp the sentiment. I die cut a banner with My Favorite Things' Stitched Sentiment Strips, one from black and one from pink cardstock. On the black stripe I heat embossed the sentiment in white. Then I assembled the card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend!
