Hello from the Glenn,
I am back with another Electic Ellapu design team card. November’s theme is “Anything Goes. My DT card has a galaxy background made with Distress Oxide Inks. I am really please at how it came out. I used 5-6 Distress Oxide ink colours including Black Soot to make the background on Strathmore 140lbs cold press watercoloured paper. I think what really made it come to life is using Tim Holtz’s Distress Paint (Picket Fence) and my fan brush to make the white spots. Once it was dry, to keep the colours from moving (if it got wet) I sealed it with some Distress Glaze. I added some Wink of Stella Clear to some of the dots to make them glitter just a little. Out of all the stuff I have in this craft room I could not believe that I did not have one stamp that had anything to do with space! Well, it just so happened that our local craft store The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, TX was having a great sale today. I found a Lawn Fawn stamp set called “Out of this World” that was just perfect for my card. If you are ever in the area, it would be well worth the trip to stop by the store. Other supplies I used for the card are 110lb White CS from Michael’s Recollection brand, Stampendous White embossing powder, Versa Mark ink pad, and Momento Tuxedo Black to stamp the sentiment . The sentiment is from a Stampin’ UP stamp set called Bring On the Cake. I’m not sure if it is retired but I know I’ve had it for a while. The finished card is 4 x 5 ¼, slightly less than an American A2 card. I think this is a great card for your little space enthusiast or even your big one…lol.Thank you for stopping by, I hope you’ll give the galaxy background a try and I look forward to seeing your inspiration in the November challenge.

|I made a matching envelope using my We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. My card is a little less than the standard A2, so I used the measurements for a 4 x 5 1/2" card.|
