Space Background

Hi, there. Today's card features a space background created with THIS and THIS die from Simon Says Stamp's latest release...

I started by covering a sheet of THIS watercolor cardstock with reds, oranges, and yellows from THIS watercolor set. I used another sheet of the same cardstock and die-cut THIS border die several times, rotating it each time until the background was covered. I appled THIS Distress Oxide ink directly to the paper covering it to create a night sky. I mixed some white acrylic paint with a bit of water on an acrylic block and flicked it on to the background using a paintbrush. After it was completely dry, I adhered it directly on top the watercolor piece.

I white heat embossed a sentiment from THIS stamp set on to a black circle cut with THIS die. I die-cut the rocket from THIS die set and adhered it on top of the sentiment. I adhered some of THIS acetate behind the window for a realistic look.

I hope this inspires you to create a space background.

Thanks for joining me today. I'll be back soon...

  1. This looks amazing Heather! The colours really really pop, especially against the black! I think galaxy or night time skies are the most fun backgrounds to make. No two are ever the same! What a cool card... and I imagine your little boy would love this one 😍
