Going to Space for Friday Mashup

I'm back with The Friday Mashup this week and Holly has a fun technique for us to try. It's called the Galaxy Technique and you can watch videos on it HERE and HERE. She also wants us to create a project for a friend.

After asking my fellow DT members what they used I went with reinkers on wax paper. I mimicked fellow DT Sara by using Naturals White card stock instead of watercolor paper. Its a great replacement and I frequently use it for watercolor projects, even though I do have watercolor paper on hand.

For my reinkers I used Crushed Curry, Basic Black and Bermuda Bay. I also used a Smoky Slate Stamping Spot. I dropped/stamped them all on wax paper and then spritzed it with water and used a paper towel to make sure it was wet but not too wet. I then put my piece of Naturals White down to pick up the color. I did this a few times to get the desired effect, with a heat tool used to dry the paper and ink when I thought it was getting too moist. If you head over to The Friday Mashup you'll see that Tara and I were thinking along the same lines with our images :)

I then took the image and sentiment and embossed it with Whisper White embossing powder on a panel I cut out with the Window Frames framelits. I then repeated the technique on this panel, wiping the ink off the embossed portion as I went along.

To finish off the card I backed the image panel on a Basic Black panel cut out with the next size up Window Frame and adhered it all with dimensionals. It's a fun card to give to an out of this world friend!

Head over to The Friday Mashup and see all the great cards from the rest of the DT, and then give the technique a try!
