Dream - a Galaxy Background :)

Oh yeah, Watercolor bug bitten me and i just cant stop creating a card today. This time its a galaxy scene. Been dying to try this technique and today managed to get a decent mimic of the galaxy. Hope you like it!

Now onto my card. Its a 5"x7" card and am pretty much comfortable working with this card size only. A watercolor cs is taken and few distress inks were built in layers to get a galaxy kind. My choice of colors here are Tumbled glass, stormy sky, black soot, picked raspberry and shaded liliac.

Then the favorite part is splashing water on the card and enjoying the way the water reacts with DIs. And a generous tiny splash of white acrylic paint on the card. IBS Sentiment is stamped using versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger super fine gold Ep. And few cute teeny tiny stars as accents to finish off the card.

Am not satisfied with the way sentiment being stamped...yet i liked the bg much and so given a space in my blog for it...Hope you like the amateur attempt of my humble galaxy background :)
