Welcome to My Galaxy - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

It's Miri's turn to host the challenge this week and she's opted for a galaxy theme - it can be a background or anything associated with another galaxy.  You can find more information and lots of wonderful inspiration from the Design Team HERE.

For my make, I reached for a very versatile set of stamps designed by Sarah Hurley.  I chose an outline stamp then had the most fun creating an alien like being.  I think I'd actually like to have a hairstyle like that!

I heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder then went over it with metallic water colour paint, I love the shimmer effect, especially on black.  This was my galaxy background, well, there may be a rainbow galaxy out there somewhere!  The sentiment from the same set was heat embossed with silver.


I've got a busy weekend ahead with the boys at a party and a post Eid lunch with more family.  I'm looking forward to it :)

Have a great weekend!

It's a cool hairstyle. Especially the little stars between the crazy curls ;-). Thanks for sharing your galaxy card with us.
