Space Dragon with Galaxy Background

Hello, friends!  It's Andrea with you today sharing a fun card featuring new products from the January release.  This would be such a fun Valentine's Day card for a little space lover.  

My card began with that out-of-this-world background.  I stamped the new Moon Background stamp with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto Bristol Smooth paper.  After masking the image, I created a galaxy background with the following shades of distress ink:  Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot.  Once I was happy with the inking, I flicked on some water and blotted it before flicking on a mixture of white paint and shimmer spritz.  I removed the mask and colored the moon with Zig markers and a waterbrush.  When everything was dry, I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to a white card.

Isn't that Space Dragon adorable?!  I stamped him with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with Copics.  After cutting him out, I added some highlights with a white gel pen and popped him up onto my card with foam tape.  His space ship got a liberal coating of clear sparkle, and the dimension and shine on his helmet are compliments of Glossy Accents.

For my sentiment I chose some words from the new You're Too Kind stamp set.  I stamped the words with Versamark onto black cardstock and white heat-embossed them.  I die-cut the sentiment with the new Quick Strips Die Set and attached it to my card.
