The images from the Seeing Stars Stamp Set included in the August 2016 Card Kit combined with Distress Inks make the most incredible galaxy backgrounds!
I stamped lots of the images from the Seeing Stars stamp set along the edge of some white cardstock included in the kit using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder.
I applied Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks over the embossed areas. I spritzed the Distress Inks with water from a Distress Sprayer and blotted the strip dry. I trimmed the strip to 2.5" high by 5.5" wide and then flicked the White Gold Starry Colors pigment based watered down ink over the strip. I cleaned the paintbrush and then flicked watered down Black Soot Distress Paint over the strip and let it completely dry.
I adhered the strip to a side fold card base and then adhered white strips above and below the strip using foam adhesive. I trimmed super thin strips from the navy cardstock and adhered it along the edges as shown.
I finished the card with an additional stamped greeting inside the card.
