Galaxy Birthday

A lot of my close family birthdays are in November, along with many others - 14 birthdays in fact, so I'm a bit behind in sharing the cards I made with you.

This was a card I made for my Husband for his birthday.  This technique is one that requires you to put it aside and leave for several hours (8 at the minimum), but I think it was worth it. 

The technique was discovered by accident by a demonstrator in Australia. She had been using the shaving cream technique for a class and forgotten to clean it up afterwards.  When she went back to her craft room she discovered it had gone all sparkly.  Deciding to put a piece of cardstock in it to see what happened, she discovered this cool galaxy effect.

I did use a few retired star sequins but they were the absolute perfect thing I needed when I got a bit stuck as to how to finish the card off.  And they were the perfect colour too.

Cardstock:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Silver Foil
Stamps: Picture Perfect Birthday
Ink: Island Indigo
Other: Sequins (retired), Reinkers - Island Indigo & Pool Party, Shaving Cream
