For today's hop I created another galaxy card. I have so much fun making these, so decided to film my process when I made this card and upload a short process video. Hope you enjoy it! You can watch it below or on my YouTube channel.



Here's the quick play by play... I used a plethora of distress oxide ink colors on this, blending them onto smooth bristol cardstock, then splattering with water and blotting off. I then added more blending to tone down the brightness of the droplets, while preserving the texture. Next I splattered pewter glimmer metallic ink and black and white watered down acrylic paint to add some splatters. More ink blending. More splatters.

Stamps are from the fabulous new Over the Moon set. I colored the images with distress oxides and a blending tool, then fussy cut and added some clear gloss accents and glitter. The sentiment is added to a circle die cut, then stamped with a background from the Textured Tiles 1 set to finish off the look.



Thanks so much for stopping by today!
