Galaxy Christmas Cards

Hi crafters!  I had so much fun making my card for last week's Simon Wednesday Challenge, that I went to town and inked some more of these galaxy backgrounds, then made them into Christmas cards.

supplies: white card base, watercolor paper, silver glitter paper, distress oxide inks (lucky clover, salty ocean, wilted violet, blueprint sketch, faded jeans), white acrylic paint for "stars", Penny Black Hope is Born woodblock stamp, star from Simon's (retired) Holy Couple and Barn dies, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder

And another variation:

supplies: white cardstock, watercolor paper, same distress oxide inks as above, flicks of diluted white acrylic paint, Impression Obsession Glory to God, (retired) Hero Arts Greatest Gift silhouette, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder, VersaFine Onyx Black ink

I used the smooth side of the watercolor paper for the first card, and the bumpy side for the second.  The inks blend equally well on both, using my fabulous new blending brushes!

HERE's another variation from last Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by - have a great week!
