Creating a Galaxy Background featuring Mama Elephant

Happy Saturday!!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start! Today, I am playing with galaxy backgrounds and space bears :)

I wanted to create another galaxy background since I had so much fun creating the first few I've done in the past.  I also wanted to ink up the adorable stamp set from Mama Elephant called Space Bears.  It is from their release I believe in Feb 2016 - so unique!!

I had in mind to create another galaxy background since it is so fitting for these bears.  This card coming together was a bit of a struggle, but thankfully the power of editing looks like it came together so smoothly :)

I started by creating a mask out of some typing paper and an oval frame die, and applied removable adhesive on the back and adhered it to the bottom of my water color card stock.  I, then took my Distress Ink colors Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean and black soot, and created the galaxy background.  You don't have to be so "prefect" when creating these backgrounds!  That is the fun part!!  I then took my Distress Sprayer and added some water droplets for an additional effect, and then applied some white Dylusions Spray in White Linen to a inexpensive toothbrush and took my fingers and pulled back the bristles and the paint even splatters on the background to create "stars".  SO. MUCH. FUN.

I set that panel aside to dry, and worked on stamping and coloring my bears.  I did basic Copic coloring as that is really what I know to do.  Once I was done coloring my bears and the flag, I die cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I then worked on the "crater" ground.  I removed my mask and applied the other part of the typing paper I used to created that mask, and inked on Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress inks.  

I also stamped the element from the stamp set to give the ground some texture.  Once I was finished there, I worked on the sentiment by embossing it with white embossing powder onto a piece of black card stock.  I adhered all of my elements, and my Space Bear scene was complete, and I added it to a white A2 sized card base.

As always the video tutorial and supplies used are below!!  Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
