Over The Moon - MFTWSC324

Hello my friends and happy Friday!  The end of another week and finally a hint of Spring is in the air and garden.

Yesterday I made a galaxy background and a moon using distress inks.  To make the galaxy background, I took a panel of 110lb white card stock and blended Picked Raspberry, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot distress ink.  The then sprayed it with water, using a distress sprayer, and blotted up the water.  The finishing touch was to splatter the background with Marshmallow glimmer mist from Tattered Angels.

I tried a couple of time to make the moon using the same white card stock but they were failures.  In the end I cut a circle from 140lb watercolor paper and using water and a brush, I painted it with Squeezed Lemonade and Iced Spruce distress inks.  I was much happier with how it turned out.

Today I used those two items to make another card for the sketch challenge at MFT Card Challenges.

I used one of the astronauts and a planet image from the Space Explorer stamp set from MFT Stamps to make my card and I'm so happy with how it turned out.  I hope you like it too.
