Shoot for the Stars

I made this card to wish my neighbour good luck at University. I wanted her to know I was thinking of her and that I I know she will do very well and enjoy it immensely.

I was looking for something inspiring and this set was on my desk, ok confession time it had fallen out of the MFT box and I had forgotten to put it back lol, the quote seemed perfect and I thought a galaxy background would work perfectly. The distress inks blend so beautifully on the watercolour card, much better than standard card. I was going to try the water droplet technique but went with the sprays instead, they give the paper a lovely shimmer.

It looks much darker on the screen than it does in real life.

Sentiment: "count the stars" MFT
Embossing powder: Ranger silver fine detail
Stars: "Sketchy stars" Papertrey Ink
Card: Snippet folder and Tim Holtz watercolour
Sequins: "charcoal" and "clear" pretty pink posh
Distress inks: "seedless preserves", "chipped sapphire" and "black soot"
Sprays: "amethyst" and "white" both Heidi Swapp
