Hello and welcome,
So my youngest daughter, Hannah, turns 25 on July 1st! She is a Trekkie and a Whovian (Dr Who fan). I did this night sky scene about a month ago in playing around and hadn't decided what to do with it. I decided since she's a space lover it would behoove me to use it for her card!
The background is a lot of different distress inks and some Perfect Pearls for shimmer, white gel pen for faraway stars and splatters of white pearl and silver paint. I used some embossing paste (my first time after having it for a year!) for the stars and colored it with silver paint from Adirondack. I did smear some of the paint under the star stencil and actually threw away my first attempt! But I persevered and like what I ended up with!
I die cut the numbers, ampersand and "awesome" from heavy weight black and white cardstock and stacked the numbers. All the black got a coat of Wink of Stella to add to the shimmery night time effect, even around the border! I adhered the night sky panel to black foam to pop it up and then to a heavy weight black cardstock base.
I added a Dr Who quote on the inside in white gel pen:
"We're all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?" (Season 6, Episode 4)
I think she will like it! Happy 25, Hannah!!
Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
