Awesome with Night Sky Background Card


Well, Kristina Werner made me try a watercolored night sky again.  😉

She posted this beautiful envelope art a few weeks ago, Kristina Werner Outer Space Envelope Art , and I had to give it another try.

So, I watercolored with Ranger Distress Inks, and let it dry. Then, I came in with Kuretake black, and let that dry. Finally, I used Kuretake white and pearl white to make the splatters. You really have to just keep going – at multiple points in the process, I HATED IT, thought it looked awful. The end product is good.

Supplies: Stamp – My Favorite Things, paper – Canson watercolor, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, Spiced Marmalade, Twisted Citron, Wild Honey, VersaFine Onyx Black, watercolors – Kuretake Gansai Tambi, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (rectangle), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

  1. Such a fab effect. You must have been really chuffed with it. Great sentiment too!

    • Gillian, I was really excited the next morning (after it was fully dry) – I was so thankful I had not ripped it in half and thrown it into the waste basket!

  2. Love the watercolored night sky. Inspiring
