Now, I know I’m coming late to the party, but I have never done a galaxy background. It has never interested me, and the more people that did one – the more I stayed away. I’m funny like that – not really following trends until they are over. I have watched numerous videos about the galaxy backgrounds, but it wasn’t until I saw the Simon Says Stamps Monday challenge, and having just had my Uniko delivery, then I thought I would have a go.
Why inspired now? No clue. No idea………but having all the stamp sets from Uniko based around stars, and wanting to do a less than simple card – well, out came my Gansai Tambi, and distress inks, and I set to it.
I used the stamps from Uniko ‘Background Builders’ and mixed in MFT ‘Stars Above’, embossing onto water-colour card with white. I then created a mess with my Gansai Tambi water-colours, pastels, starry colours, Brusho’s – you name it, I seemed the throw everything at it! I didn’t know when to stop. I just know I had to have some bright colours in the background showing through when I covered the piece with distress ink Black Soot, splashed with water, then splashed with white…………Actually, I can’t remember half of what I did to it!
The sentiment is from MFT, and a coloured base card just to bring some of the colour together from the background.
I don’t know if I’ll be doing this frequently, but I had some fun. Maybe when I am in the mood not to think, but just play, I’ll have a go again.
The challenges I will be entering:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – it’s written in the stars
QKR Stampede – anything goes
Colour Crazy Challenge – anything goes
