Shooting Star in Action!

Hi there, can you believe it's Thursday already? Is it me, or is this week just flying by? Maybe it's me? I went back to work Monday after a 2 week stay-cation and I have been playing catch up ever since. Wow, you wouldn't believe how much work piles up on your desk when you're away for a couple of weeks! It was all worth it though that's for sure. Anyhoo, I have a cute card I put together that I wanted to share with you. I had all sorts of intentions of doing a video on this one however, Mother Nature and her power outage over the weekend squashed that idea and there just hasn't been any time since then to pull it together. (The plan now is to just do a craft room tour for you!)
To create this card, I started with a standard Basic Black card base and a piece of Watercolor paper cut at 5.5" x 4.25" and sponged on Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight ink. I was very random in how I applied the colors using sponges. I then went over the entire piece with Black Archival ink and sponge. Once I was happy with the amount of coverage I got, I took the White Craft Ink re-inker and placed a few drops into an embellishment container lid and added a bit of water to thin it out; using my Aqua Painter, I picked up the white ink and "flicked" it over the Watercolor piece to create the white splatter you see here.. Once the piece was dry, I used the Big Shot and the Sliding Star Framelit collection to create the round slider channel and popped the pieces up onto the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals. I then stamped the shooting star image onto a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock with Archival Black ink and colored it in with my Watercolor pencils and added clear Wink of Stella to the stars. I then took 2 shiny new pennies and adhered them together with a Stampin' Dimensional that I had rounded off with my paper snips (this helps the pennies mover around the channel in a smoother motion) and I then adhered the stars to the pennies with another Dimensional and inserted the pennies into the channel. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of Basic Black cardstock with Versamark ink after I had prepped it with the Embossing buddy. I added Whisper White embossing powder and heat set it with my Heat tool and punched it out with the Classic Label punch and added it to the front of the card with a glue dot.
'And that completes our card for today. I really hope you enjoyed this one and that it inspires you to pull out your supplies and just have fun with them. Mix colors and don't be afraid to reach out of your comfort zone. You just never know what awesomeness will come of it.
Have a great day and Happy Stamping!
