Easy Galaxy Background

Hello dear friends! I'm back with a watercolored galaxy card + a tiny tutorial..

Creating this background is very easy and so much fun.. ;)


Take an acetate or any slippery surface and place the watercolors.. You can use purple, blue, green, orange, pink , yellow and red for the galaxy. Here I used my 'camlin 12 cake water colors'. Then I flicked some white watercolor with the help of two different sized brushes. If you want to have a larger splatter use large brush and if you want a tiny or small splatter of color use small sized brush.

Then spritz some water and place the cardstock on the top of the acetate and press it firmly and wait for few seconds. And that's it our galaxy background is ready.

If you want to add more details you can flick the white paint again and you can also add perfect pearls. Yes! I added perfect pearls, brushed pewter distress stain and a little amount of glitter..

I then stamped the satellite from 'Inspired by stamping - kid's fun' stampset and water colored it using faber-castell connector pens. Then stamped the sentiment from 'Prima' and dusted it with perfect pearls. 

Entering this card for the following challenges..

Hope you got inspired and liked my card! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me comment. Take care and I'll see you very soon.. :)
