June Giveaway Winner... and Galaxy Anniversary Card!

Hello and welcome!

I know I've been absentee for the last two weeks since I put up the June giveaway post but life has been crazy busy for the last two weeks after getting home from vacation and trying to catch up. Not that I've caught up but it will be less busy... I think... I hope!

My 32nd wedding anniversary was June 16th and the card shown is the card I made for my husband! I started with Ranger watercolor card stock and taped a 1-1/2" circle stencil over it on a Ranger craft mat. Then I used Wendy Vecchi translucent embossing paste and did uneven thickness over the stencil to make it seem more like planets or moons with craters on the surface. I let this air dry and used Ranger Distress Inks in Black Soot, Dusty Concord, and Blueprint Sketch over the planets/moons, concentrating the black around the edges. I also used a fairly dry foam pad over the planets/moons to color them gray. Then I splatter several Ranger Distress Paints in pearl white, picket fence, silver, Perfect Pearls for shimmer and black to add depth and splatters. Finally, using my MISTI tool, I stamped a Neat & Tangled set called "A Long Time Ago" (that I won in a blog hop!!) and finished the inside with the sentiment... "We Got Married"! It was fun and well received!

And now the winner of my June blog giveaway from my Instagram post is...
