Moon and Back Galaxy Card

Last week, it seemed that "galaxy" cards filled all of my social media streams.  So, I couldn't help myself but to try one.  Kecia Waters on the blog today.

To make this card, I watercolored a panel of Tim Holtz watercolor paper using my Kurtake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I started by painting blues and purples to cover the panel.  I blotted some of the colors off with a paper towel, and repeated.  I wanted to achieve some depth of color.  I applied heat with a heat gun several times to speed up the drying, and continued to add blues and purples.  For the last layer, and painted black over most of the panel and blotted with a paper towel.  What you see was the end result.

Once completely dry, I sponged the moon with a Ranger mini ink blending tool using Brilliance Moonlight pigment ink.  I then stamped the AJVD sentiment from the "Simply Said: Moon & Back" stamp set with white pigment ink.  I added white embossing powder and heat embossed.  In the background, I added a few dots of Copic White to appear like stars.  I also added three fuchsia satin sequins from AJVD.    I placed the finished panel onto a white card.
