I’ve done starry night sky ink blending before, and it is one of my favorite backgrounds to make! You can use a variety of blues, purples, and even blacks to create a dark sky. The best thing about today’s card was I could use the Slim Star die along with my background and quickly die cut tons of tiny stars!
Ink Blend the Sky
I began this card by grabbing a slimline card front and using my Distress Oxides to blend on some color. I started with Tumbled Glass, then some Mermaid Lagoon, and finally some Seedless Preserves. I made sure to keep some areas lighter and some areas darker. This just adds to the dreamy look of the background.
For all of my background ink blending I used the Domed Blender from Scrapbook.com. These domed foams use less ink and leave less harsh marks on your paper. Definitely worth it if you are new to ink blending, or even a pro!
Die Cut Some Slim Stars
The Slim Stars die was the first one from the slimline dies that I had to grab. I loved the idea of cutting out all the stars and then having a confetti of stars that I could also use later on in shaker cards.
You could go ahead and store these stars in the little Embellishment Jars that Scrapbook offers. Great way to make your own shaker bits! These jars are so handy for storing your pretty bling. I even use one to store tiny googly eyes that I can add to stamped images.
Once my stars were die cut, I used some Fun Stamper’s Journey along with a glitter brush pen to splatter on some more sparkles. Can never sparkle too much!
To The Moon and Back
Lastly, for this card, I added the moon and the sentiment. The moon is from a layered stencil set from Spellbinders. I used several light grey colors and then cut out the moon to add it to my card.
I also added the sentiment from a coordinating Spellbinders stamp set, and glued a few more gold stars on around my sentiment. Done!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you love the card as much as I loved creating it.
