Under the Milky Way....a challenge card!

Happy Hump Day!!   I decided to play along with the Moxie Fab World Trendy Star Power Challenge.   I have never played along before, but I love anything to do with stars, and inspiration kind of struck when I read Teri's post.   I wanted to create a kind of "galaxy" look to my card, so online I went to see what kind of pictures I could find for inspiration.   Here's what I found:

So I tried to figure out how I'd do this....I tried paint on black paper, but it just wasn't coming anywhere near capturing how cool that that image looks!   I remembered that I had just recently picked up a package of Ranger black glossy paper (black!   who knew!?!?).   I figured if I used some silver metallic mixative first , then I could get the colors to layer over top.   It worked!   I was so excited!   After I got it how I wanted it, I splattered some Dylusions spray over the whole cardfront, then sprayed it with Glitter Mist.   The rest was simple!   A silver heat embossed sentiment, some gemstones for stars, and it was complete!   I'm super happy with this card.   I think it's a pretty good representation of the picture!  Of course, looking at it now I wish I had added some raspberry colored alcohol ink, but hey - I guess we are our own worst critics, right?  LOL!

Here's a close up of the alcohol inks/sentiment....
To play along with the challenge, head over to the Moxie Fab World!

I'm also linking this to A Blog Named Hero for their "New Year, New Stash" challenge.....see, that new black glossy paper sure came in handy!  Ha!!

Also, head over to V's Sweet Challenge blog for their "Anything Goes" challenge.

Hope all is well where you are....I know this weather has been crazy and I hope everyone is staying safe and warm!   Two more days till the weekend :)
