1 – Cut some white card stock for blending to 10.5cm x 14.8cm. Start with Wilted Violet distress ink and blend a few spots onto your card, do the same with Peacock Feathers distress ink and Blueprint Sketch to fill in the gaps around the other colours and blend into them when they meet. Next add Chipped Sapphire and keep filling the white space and blending with the other colours. Lastly add some Black Soot ink around the edges.

 2 – To make your sky more like a ‘galaxy’ add some sparkle pen to your craft mat and use a paint brush to flick onto your sky. Once dry mix some white paint with a little water and flick onto your sky. Repeat with some lime green paint. Note – if you don’t have lime green paint you can use any other bright colour you have.


 3 – When your ‘Galaxy is dry trim a little off each edge to fit to the front of your card. Die cut some solid clouds from white card stock and some outline clouds from silver glitter paper (or whatever colour you have) using the Swirly Cloud Die.  Colour your stamped images and cut out with matching dies. 

5 – Assemble your card using foam squares to pop up some of your clouds and owls.
