Less is More Week #351

Good morning

I'm here to introduce the new challenge at Less is More and we're back with a Theme challenge this week.  And we have a fun one for you...

And throughout this month our fab sponsor is Uniko so why not
play along for a chance to win our monthly prize.

Just the one card from me this week but I had great fun making it...

I started by stamping, colouring with ProMarkers and then die cutting the characters with their co-ordinating dies.  I die cut a circle from a panel of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment below.  I then masked the area on the card base which would appear through the aperture before blending with Distress Inks.  I started with three colours and then gently blended over the top with black, enabling the colours to still show through to create a galaxy effect.  I then added some water splatters which I blotted, and then added some stars with a white pigment pen.  The panel was then popped up on 3D foam and the little guys adhered within the aperture.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Out of this World
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress Inks: Picked Raspberry, Blueprint Sketch, Twisted Citron, Black Soot
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted - Out of this World die collection; Hero Arts - Circle Infinity Dies
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
