The Universe is made of tiny stories!

 Hello, guys!
Today I am very excited as I am showcasing a creation for which I ended up doing a lot of experimenting( to create the Galaxy background on my card). Initially, I thought that making an ink blended galaxy BG would be too hard to make, but I am so glad that I achieved the loving results!
To create this amazing BG, I just rubbed a few watercolour crayons on my white CS randomly using my finger. Then I blended some black soot distress ink at the three corners and in between too! Now, I repeated the whole process once again until I achieved the desired result. It depends on how much ink blending do you want!
From another angle.

Look at the shine too:). I got such amazing results using Recollections watercolor Crayons which I won at FB contest this month. Thank u so much Priya Sivaraj:))))))

 Then I  added some splatters for textures using my brush.
After that, I die cut a circle from the panel and another one from a vellum. Created a stitched texture outside the circle for more dimension and depth. Now embossed my sentiment. Then added them to my front panel using foam dots for dimension to show as a planet.
Finally, I die cut several tiny stars out of the shiny black sheet and adhered them on my BG. Added a glittered washi tape at the top!

Overall this card took less than 45 minutes to make and I really enjoyed the Final results. Will try to make more cards on Galaxy theme!!!

supplies used:
Shiny black CS, Neenah solar white CS
Recollections sparkly watercolour crayons from The Craft Shop
Black soot Distress ink
Stitched circle layers and Beloved stars(partially used only stars) from Memory box
Rectangles from Tattered lace
Sentiment from Jillibean soup- Tiny stories
Primary Ebony Wow embossing powder
Dylusion white linen Ink Spray

Would love to participate in the following challenges: There is lot of textures and shine I used this sentiment stamp first time, having in my stash from a long time. I am inspired by Shalu's Galaxy BG, colors, stamping, heat embossing!
