AquaTints in the Cosmos ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, Happy Easter Wishes to you all (if you don’t have faith please don’t be offended, it’s a long weekend). I hope your week is going well. I decided to play with my Spectrum Noir AquaTints (ATs) and white card snippets and that means I have a card to share with you and here it is …
An A6 card which certainly packs a colour punch
Yes I am happy!
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #186 Anything Goes
I might be stepping out too far but the Industrial theme reminds me of machinery.
Machinery was used to create a spacecraft and a space station.
A spacecraft took our Major Tim Peakes to the International Space Station.
That’s my inspiration and I’ve been trying to create something that looked like it might be the Milky Way or view from the I.S.S.

The Pencil Case Challenge #15 O for Opulent: I think this fits
I used my ATs neat which gives lots of lovely rich colour. I had two white snippets which I assumed would completely cover a card, but I didn’t check: naughty me! So I dampened the white snippets with water before using the two shades of blue, two shades of green and one red. I left them to dry and created my own shimmer spray using my Perfect Pearls ‘
’ (the white) and water into one of my
spray bottles and I sprayed it randomly over the cards. Once that was dry I attached a stencil to the
card and added a thin layer of Dreamweaver Copper embossing paste (another tub
of supplies used) then I sprinkled deep blue glitter onto the cards. Pearl
I created an A6 card and then realised the two small snippets weren’t big enough to cover a card. I glued my two star panels onto the card and a coloured snippet from my stash. I seem to create a lot of backgrounds with shades of blue there were quite a lot like my star background. I stamped and embossed the sentiment onto another ATs snippet and added that to the card (I’m reasonably sure that one was coloured with the Beautifully Grunge ATs). So one card created with white snippets and coloured by me snippets. Yippee the snippets bags aren’t quite as full now and the last of some rather old embossing paste was used up: got to love that!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
