To build the night sky background, I first applied Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks. Once the Distress Oxides are blended well, I spritzed the backgrounds with the Metallic Blueberry Mist and the Gold Shimmer Mist from the kit. I think you get the best results with the distress inks when you let the mists sit for about a minute and then blot dry with a paper towel.
Once the background is completely dry, I flicked white opaque paint over the backgrounds with a small paintbrush.
When the paint is completely dry I stamped the silhouette images from the card kit 6" x 8" stamp set included in the kit on the inked backgrounds using black dye ink. Stardust images and greetings from the stamp set were stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Platinum Embossing Powder or White Embossing Powder. The embossed areas add another layer of dimension and interest to these night skies!
Clouds from the stamp set were stamped on vellum using Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being die cut with the coordinating die and adhered to the cards as shown.
Each background was trimmed to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered to a white top fold card base to finish the design.
