Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing the new Shooting Star Stamp Set and coordinating Shooting Star Creative Cuts dies. The new Stitched Sky Creative Cuts coordinate perfectly with the Shooting Star Stamp Set and I love how they add to the design of my card today.
to create the background for my card, I applied Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper using the Mini Ink Blending Tools. I blended the colors until I go the desired "night sky" look I was going for. To distress the background, I added water droplets with a Mini Mister and then with a paintbrush dipped in water to really get a distressed look. I set the background aside to dry while I stamped the girl from the Shooting Star Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored her in with Copic Markers (the individual marker colors are linked below in supplies).
I die cut the girl with the coordinating Shooting Star Creative Cuts die. I die cut the clouds and moon from white cardstock using the Stitched Sky Creative Cuts. I added color to the moon with Wild Honey Distress Ink applied using the Mini Ink Blending Tool.
I adhred the clouds to the card with foam adhesive, adhered the girl and moon and finished the card with a bit of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker over the moon, the girls dress, and hair bow.
