Friday Craft, Galaxy Background

Leave a comment

This is my first galaxy using Distress Inks. I watched a few tutorials on You Tube before giving it a try and it was quite easy. I used a blending tool to make patches of Worn Lipstick, Fossilized Amber, Peacock Feathers, and Seedless Preserves. The cardstock in the photo above is nothing special, just bargain stuff you can find in the office supply store.

Then I blended Faded Jeans and Black Soot on top and around the patches of color until I was happy with the look.

You can use droplets of water to create the faded patches, and splatters of white paint for stars. I’m really happy with this first effort. I’ve already made another and plan on doing a large one to use for a pop-up box card.

Stay tuned for cute astronaut action!
