Hi and welcome, thanks for stopping by....

I don't usually make 'messy' cards but I really enjoyed creating this galaxy background (hubby thought it was fireworks going off LOL... may be I need to practise more)

I used several distress oxide inks for the background, and instead of blending the colours I spritzed water over the inks and dried them with a heat tool.  The colours will blend very nicely when you do this

If you want to add more colour/layers of colours remember to heat dry after you have spritzed with water

I used a circle punch for the moon and cut this with heavy white vellum and white cardstock, glued the two together, adhered to the card and cut the overhang away

A white paint pen was used to create the stars and some random stars were glittered

The base card is 10.5cm x 15cm with a smaller white panel that was embossed

The sentiment was die cut 4 times, glued together prior to adhering to the card, at a jaunty angle 

The verse was stamped with a Memento ink pad
