This month I used To the Moon Stamp/Die set from Altenew

I knew I wanted to create a Galaxy effect background, so I got out my Dr. Ph. Martin's India Inks and my Jane Davenport's Bright's Palette set.

I started out the same for each card, but taping some watercolor cold-press paper to a mason board and wetting it completey. I then added Pink's, purple's, blue's and black to the paper. I stamped the layered moons onto Mixed Media Paper with different Grey tone inks and die cut with the matching die.  

For the Dr. Ph. Martin's India Inks, they blend and layer well, but once dry, they are dry. lol. I loved the vibrancy of them though. Once dry, I added the white and gold splatter with a tooth brush and added some "comets" with a Signo White Gel Pen. I used Distress Inks, in Weathered Wood, Hickory Smoke. 

For the card using Jane Davenport's Bright's palette, I did the same thing, wet the card and dab the paint to create the texture/movement I wanted. I didn't go with a start black but rather the "Ink" Blue. I also, only used the 2 layers of the Moon Stamp for this card. I embossed the "Moon" word die cut in Reflections Silver embossing powder twice, to give it more depth. 

I sure hope I've inspired you to get Crafty today and can't wait to see your makes in this month's Challenge! Be sure to check out the DT's makes for more inspiration here
