Wish Upon A Star

Today I'm using my favorite stamp set from Lawn Fawn's 2017 summer release. I really enjoy how the fox and bunny look up to the sky and that there are so many constellation stamps in the set.

For the background I used Zig clean color real brush markers. I first scribbled 5 different blue/green colors all over my watercolor paper. Then I used a wet brush to spread out the paints and blend the colors, as well as drawing the outlines of the background. The colors from these Zig markers are so vibrant. I didn't need to create multiple layers like I normally do with normal watercolor.

After the background was created, I used silver embossing powder to emboss the constellations. I also splashed some water and appiled the same silver embossing powder to create random star effects. At this point, the background is finished and the rest is simple!



I'm submitting this card to the following challenges.
  
Supplies used in this card:
  • Lawn Fawn upon a star stamp set (LF)
