Galaxy Hello Card

For today's card I used Distress Ink and my Gansai Tambi watercolors to create a galaxy card.


I started with a piece of Canson watercolor paper taped to a board. I blended Distress ink all over the panel in the colors Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, and Dusty Concord.


I added splatters of a shimmery white (color #906) paint from the Gansai Tambi watercolors. Then I used a paintbrush and clean water to blend out all of the Distress Ink. I added a few colors of Gansai Tambi paint (#43, #57, #37) to brighten up some of the color. I kept adding splatters inbetween everthing else that I did to the piece.


I used the black (#20) Gansai Tambi paint randomly across the panel. Once that was dry I added some more Distress Ink to really deepen up the color. Finally I added some more splatters and then the galaxy was finished.


I used a Spellbinders die for my hello sentiment and the Hero Art's Friends stamp set for the other sentiment. For the finishing touches on this card I added dashed lines around the galaxy border. I also added half pearls and sequins to the galaxy. Finally I added Wink of Stella glitter to the sentiment strip.
