Night sky background stars celebration card with accents ~ tutorial

 Hello.  For Technique Time at Unity, I am showing a way to make a festive and fun night sky background for a celebration card.  Extra accents were added to make the scene.



Sentiment:  Cheers.  It is the beginning of anything you want.


Making a night sky background scene is easy with stamps, ink and embossing.  Plus, fun celebration details and stamps make it extra festive.

Helpful tips:
Here are helpful tips for creating this night sky background card.  To begin, die-cut or paper trim all of the background and accent layers and panels.  Next, stamp the girl and the sentiment.  Then, add color to the girl with Copic markers or others.  Also, make a strand of lights and add glitter glue to make them sparkle.  Next, fussy cut (cut out) the girl.  Then, onto the oval white cardstock panel, stamp the stars with embossing ink and then heat emboss the stars in white.  Next, blend distress ink in two blue colors, dark enough for a night sky.  Then, with a dry paper towel, wipe the inked panel lightly to make the stars appear brighter.  Finally, assemble the scene building card layers, to finish.


I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
