Galaxy Greetings...

Today I have another fun card for you!  It's totally different than my last post, but I think it's pretty cool.  Since it's Friday you know it's a part of the Friday Mashup.  This week Holly has challenged us with a new to me technique called the Galaxy Technique.  Boy did I have fun playing around with it!  So here's the challenge...


Create a project with the "Galaxy Technique".   Links to technique HERE &HERE.
Create a project for "A Friend". 
or Mash it Up! and create a "Project for a friend using the Galaxy Technique".


I did create this card for a friend, actually a coworker.  It ended up being a "thinking of you" because he lost his beloved little doggy Honey Bunny.  It was not a good day last Friday!  Let's hope today is much better. :)  He really liked his card too and that's a compliment from someone who is very artistic!


Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup HERE to see all the other cards by the designers...yup, love them!  If you have the time, try and play along with us, but watch the videos Holly has linked for you and use your imagination.  I had to use the supplies that I had on hand, so I used reinkers on very wet naturals white paper, dried it with my heat tool, then ran it through my Big Shot between two cutting pads and under an embossing folder.  Straightened that warped thing like you wouldn't believe! lol


I put in a couple more pics so you can see how a card's looks can be affected by different lighting.  I was trying to get the dark of the galaxy to really stand out and not the trees.  I did stamp the trees in white, but the white absorbed the colors from the galaxy so they were actually darker like in the first picture.  The last two pics were definitely brighter than the card, especially the trees.  Plus I embossed the sentiment in white so it stood out a little more.




Thanks for looking and have a great day!

  1. This cam out great Sara! It actually makes me think of the view of the sky from my yard! I'm surrounded by trees and we have no light pollution so during our dark nights of the winter the sky is just amazing, especially when the aurora is out.

    Fantastic job!
