Happy New Year, everyone! I’m kicking off 2016 by sharing an easy way to create Galaxy Background using Altenew inks. I am a little late to the party, as this has been already previously shared many-many times using various mediums. However, I was curious to see if I would be able to make a galaxy background using my Altenew inks and I’m happy I gave this idea a try.

I used a few colors for my galaxy background, started with Warm Sunshine, Ocean Waves, Desert Night, Midnight Violet and Deep Iris. Although I almost did not use Depe Purple as it wasn’t giving me the color intensity I wanted. Altenew inks are dye inks and they happen to react nicely with water, this allows to create beautiful spots when adding drops of water over inked area.

For my sentiment I went with the Super Script 2 stamp set and heat embossed a simple Wish Upon A Star sentiment in gold. Because my panel warped slightly from water and heat embossing I decided I would trim it down and would also flatten it in my machine. I used my favorite Simon’s Stitched Rectangle die for that. To finish this project I adhered my piece onto a black A2 card base.

    1. Lost my jaw when first saw this card. Love space theme and space backgrounds. But even if I hated them I’d lost my mind from this card. It’s just out of this world!
