Look For The Stars

          I have another MFT Challenge card to share today, this time it is for their sketch challenge. If you want to head over their just click HERE and go to their blog, then click on the Challenge and Inspiration area. It sounds hard but look on the right side of the page and you can't miss it.

          Here is the sketch that we were suppose to follow.

          I really didn't know what I wanted to do til the last minute, so I barely made it in time. When I saw this Star Die from MFT today I finally got my idea. It's another one that's not a Holiday card but I like how it turned out.

I started by watercoloring both layers of the card. The top layer was just a quick watercolor wash starting with Galaxy Grey. After that dried I added a little bit of Celestial Pink and Starlight Blue and was done. The layer below the stars is a "Galaxy" background technique with multiple layers of all three of these colors to achieve that look. The watercolors are handmade by a friend from Instagram, they are called hwg watercolors if you are interested. this photo is how this project started.

This is a great example of the different shades you can achieve with the same three colors.

All of my other supplies are from My Favorite Things (MFT). I diecut the stars with their new stitched star die.Then Cut down the darker background to fit behind the stars. Next I stamped the sentiment from Written In The Stars with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder on black cardstock and cut these down to fit over the stars. I assembled everything and then added the sequins which is Pretty Pink Posh Starry Night Mix.

Again, this card has much more shimmer in person. The watercolors are full of shimmer and I will put more pictures below to try to show you a little more...but it is SO much better in person.

Hope you liked my Star / Galaxy watercolor card for MFT's sketch challenge and you will stop bye to visit again. Thank you for stopping bye, I really appreciate it. -Jodi
