Starry Night

Today's card is my first attempt at a galaxy scene and let's just say you need to squint to see a galaxy in this background :)  But I'm putting it up anyway.


The galaxy theme is this week's challenge at Friday Mashup plus I used the sketch at Mojo Monday - although the proportions are a bit off due to the size of the sentiment.

I created my galaxy using watercolor paints.  I did try another one using distress inks and might use that another day.  After it was dry, I white embossed the sentiment and stars.  I decided the yellow was most prominent so used some Crushed Curry cardstock for the scalloped piece which I scored at the end of each scallop.  I carried the scoring over to the black panel to mimic the sketch.  I wrapped some striped blue twine around the panel before using foam tape to adhere to a white card base.

Thanks for visiting.

This is AWESOME, Karren! I love how you've created the starry, night sky! And the big, bold sentiment is on my enabling list! LOL, that list grows every day.
