I thank my lucky stars...



It' been a few days since my last post. It's that time of year again, when it's dark and cold and miserable. I needed a few days off everything, including crafting. But today I felt like I wanted to create something again, so I continued to play with the galaxy technique I tried out here.

This card was inspired by several challenges. I love the colour combo over at Colour Throwdown, and I thought it would be perfect for the galaxy technique. I was also inspired by this week's CAS(E) This Sketch. I'm also joining in with the Snarky Sisters, where the theme this time is T is  for Thanks (for nothing). Last but not least I will also join Stampin' Royalty where the theme is Silver. 




Card: Leonardo Stationery 300 gsm white card, Daley & Rowney Aquafine watercolour paper, Hobbycraft Three shades of blue 160 gsm card, Coloured 240 gsm kraft card purple grape, Stampin' Up silver glimmer paper
Paints: Tim Holtz Distress Paint Black Soot, Broken China, Seedless Preserves and Picket Fence
Other: Xcut star die
