It's Saturday and time for a NEW Challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!!!

Another two weeks has flown by and February is just a ticking along as is our snowy weather. Here in SWO we have had negative 10 to -20 Celsius and snowflurries every day. It help when you have a bunch of crafting to do. The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge is G is for Galaxy!! I know I've said it before but some challenges SCARE me and this was one but I watched a few videos checked to see if I had some of the colours and set out to make a mess well not one but 4 messes.  The video I followed (although mine isn't as awesome as hers) is from the Craft Bunny.  I found it easy to follow and I think I achieved a galaxy background.


I do need more practice with the technique but this was one of the "fails" when I left the panels to watch the hockey game  and went back to them I was really liking this one. I used Cameo Coral cardstock I thought it highlighted the coral in the galaxy, then layered it on silver and on a black base. I chose a simple die cut...Shine which is from a pack of  10 dies. 


Here is a muted version of my galaxy background it was layered on So Saffron and Gold with the same small sentiment.


This is what I call a "fail" I love the background but detest the splotches of ink. I found a different video for this one and it was just using three colours of blue distress inks. Broken Glass, Salty Ocean and I used faded jeans but it could have called for Chipped Sapphire (on my list to buy) and of course the Black Soot and was very easy. Here is the video for this one.

Well that's all for now folks Don't forget to check out the AWESOME cards made by the rest of the design team just click HERE. I hope you will try this challenge it was a lot of fun and for me messy (I will give hubby heck for getting black soot on the towel)

Absolutely beautiful! LOVE your galaxy background! Even the fail looks good... you can still use it on another card... don't bin it! Have a great weekend!

I like the *fail* background, too - splotches and all! I'm glad you got messy and made such great galaxies!
