Star gazing

Hello everyone! Last month, I was inspired by Nanette at StampNation to create a galaxy background on a large panel (I used an A4 sheet of watercolour card), and I decided it was high time to use it to create some cards. So here's the first card I created.

The cheap set of sparkly watercolours (from a local shop) that I used to create my first layer does provide some amazing sparkle to the background IRL. I also added some diluted glass bead gel, some water droplets, splatters of white acrylic paint and some white enamel accent stars. The image (Penny Black) was coloured using Spectrum Noir coloured pencils and then fussy cut and then poppped up over my hand-cut snow bank from a snippet of hammered cardstock. The star (Essentials by Ellen) was heat embossed in white (SSS) and the sentiment (SSS) was stamped in Archival black ink with the help of my MISTI.

I'm linking up my card at:

Jingle Belles - Peace on earth

SSS Wednesday - Stamp on it

Almost forgot to link it up at PBSC as well,
