Good morning crafters. How are you enjoying the Autumn Winter catalogue so far? So many lovely things to look at and ideas to get your crafting mojo going.
I have another Autumn Winter inspired creation to share with you today. One of my sisters absolutely loves all things galaxy print. I have seen so many tutorials on Pinterest on how to create this effect for yourself on fabric and using various tie dye methods. So I decided to have a go at creating my own galaxy effect Christmas card.
And it was surprisingly easy to create.
I started by sponging my top layer of Whisper White all over in Tempting Turquoise. I then created contrast by sponging areas with Island Indigo. I then covered all the sponging with Blackberry Bliss being careful to leave some of the other colours showing through. I finished by sponging a small amount of Night of Navy around the edges.
To create the stars and galaxy movement I used an Aqua Painted. I lightly flicked water over my finished sponged layer and left to dry. This gave the effect of the stars in the background. Once dry I used my fine tip glue to add Metallic Sequins.
I cut my sleigh using the Jingle All The Way bundle of products. I cut my layer to size and adhered with Dimensionals over a layer cut from Gold Foil card.
Thank you for popping by today. I hope you enjoyed this technique today. I love any technique where no two cards will look the same (and you can't really go wrong either!). I will be back on Friday with another festive fun creation. Please let me know if you have any questions about Stampin' Up! or our products. I would love to help.
