Hey there, this week's CAS challenge, Let the Background Talk, is all about open space with a burst of color. I decided to break out My Favorite Thing's Out of This World stamp set and create a sponged galaxy background.
On a 4.25" square piece of Neenah Solar White, I sponged Memento Pear Tart towards the corner. From there, Summer Sky, Danube Blue, Paris Dusk and finally Tuxedo Black was sponged onto the background panel. When it was done, a paint brush was used to speckle water drops onto the panel. Then white acrylic paint was thinned down with water, speckled and set aside to dry. While it was drying, the spaceship was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White, cut out with the coordinating die then colored with Copic markers. A clear glaze pen was used for a nice, subtle shine on the window. The medium sized circle frame was used to create the track for the spinner card. So much fun!
