Galaxy Background Using Watercolours

I have tried ‘galaxy-like’ backgrounds for my cards but have been fascinated by the watercolour galaxy background cards that some card makers have shared on various platforms…I couldn’t understand how it was done until I saw the tutorial by Yana Smakula….I do realise that I have used too much colour and less water so my backgrounds are quite blotchy and brighter than they should be… anyways,these are my first couple of tries following the technique….

I chose gold cardstock to create the card base for my first card…I cut out a watercolour panel to size and stamped the dragon,the hedgehog and the log and masked them…I didn’t know how my background was going to turn out so I did not colour in the images right away… 🙂
I then pulled out my Gansai Tambi watercolours and my heat gun and followed the tutorial to create my background…I did add some gold paint splatters on my background which Yana hasn’t…
Once my panel was completely dry,I coloured in the images using Spectrum Noir markers and added the stamped sentiment label to the card front…finally, I used the sparkle pen on the coloured images and my card was ready…

For my second card I chose a green card base and cut watercolour cardstock to size for the front panel…I stamped and masked the unicorn image and proceeded to create the galaxy background…
Once dry,I coloured in the image and die cut a tag from silver foil cardstock and stamped the sentiment using blazing red stazon ink…I adhered some craft foam under the tag before adding it to the card…

To embellish this card I have used silver star sequins…and because I find foil cardstock so hard to photograph I have added quite a few pictures of this card…here is a much clearer and close up shot of the silver tag…

Unicorn In The Clouds – Birthday Card

For today’s card,I decided to use soft colours to give it a bit of a magical look…I also wanted to use Vellum for the clouds and am very happy with how that turned out..

I started with a white card base with a white die cut top layer as well…then using Distress Oxide inks mixed with water and smooshed and splattered them onto the top layer very lightly to create the background…I have used cracked pistachio,worn lipstick and broken china shades of Distress Oxide inks here…
Using the clouds border dies and some vellum paper,I die cut three pieces and sponged the edges with blue ink and them layered them onto the top layer….

On a separate piece of white cardstock I stamped the unicorn image using black Versafine pigment ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder and then coloured it in and cut it out..I also went over the coloured image with my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen so it look even more magical and adhered it to the card front using craft foam…

I stamped the sentiment on the top right using black ink and adhered a few small purple coloured star sequins to embellish my card..

Here’s a close up shot of the Unicorn and the vellum clouds..

Hope Your Day Is Magical

“Always be Yourself,unless you can be a Unicorn.Then always be a Unicorn” I read this quote a while ago and loved it…I know they are mythical creatures but there is something so magical,mysterious and happy about them….don’t you think??
For today’s card I chose a berry blue coloured cardstock for the card…I die cut the top layer from watercolor paper using Avery Elle double pierced rectangle die….then using a stencil and a few shades of blue distress inks I created the background for this card…
The Unicorn image I have used is from a stamp by The Greeting Farm called Magical Day…I coloured it in with bright colours and cut it out before placing it on the top layer…
I stamped the sentiment top center and heat embossed it using a purple embossing powder…and finally to embellish this card I have used silver star sequins..
Thanks for visiting my blog today…Have a lovely & blessed day ahead….Happy crafting…!!
