You are awesome


I got inspired by the Winnie & Walter playdate no. 3, the sketch was really cool and since I got some new stamps I actually made a card for the challange too instead of just saving the sketch and forget about it as I usually do when I find a fun challange. So, here is my card and the stamps are Winnie and Walter of course, the background is inspired by some great galaxy-type backgrounds I’ve seen around the web lately. I think the first I saw was in the Watercolor for cardmakers class. I think it turned out really nice. And I had fun making it. 

That’s it for today. Tomorrow I think I’ll blog a LO for a change. Check back then :) Thanks for stopping by!

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)

  1. When I think about it, didn’t at least Kristina use watercolor for her galaxy? I used distress inkpads spritzed with water on a craft sheet and just smoshed the paper in it. I have no patience for watercolor I discovered taking the watercolor for cardmakers class ;) Let’s see, I think I used chipped saphire, seedless preserves and peacock feathers to make spots of color and then black soot around them… I used water, gold mist, silver mist and white mist to splatter stars and dried it all between layers. I think that was sort of the same as Jennifer did om hers. I could be wrong, I don’t have the best memory unforunetly ;) Get right back on it and if it looks like a mess, just keep drying and adding layers. You can do it! :)


  2. GAH! Thanks SO much for the answer. I’ve also watched those “galaxy” videos, particularly by Jennifer and Kristina and I’ve practiced them and practiced them. Yours looks SOOOOO good, and I can imagine that drying inbetween can get a little iffy ….. I’ll keep at it and verify that I HAVE an opaque powder before I try anything after the fact.


  3. Thank you Kim, I did the embossing first and then the galaxy. You will have to be a bit careful if you are impatient like me and use the heat tool to dry the galaxy between layers but I never had any problems with overheating the embossingpowder (yet). But as long as you use opaque embossing powder you can emboss after making the background if you like, I wanted to use pearlescent embossing powder and it is a bit different and takes some of the color from what’s under it and would probably have disapered a bit on the busy background. Anothet thing to concider is that the paper warps a bit when applying as much water as I did and you will probably need to tape it down if you want to do the embossing after…
