Constellation Prize


Day 5 of Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat’s Pajamas is sure to bring a smile to your face.  I happen to think these little playing penguins and the sentiments are hysterical :)  Here’s Constellation Prize.  




First off, let me just say, I LOVE the sentiment on this card....it’s so perfect for these playful little guys and the galaxy theme.  First I stamped them on Neenah White and coloured them up with some Copics (super easy as it was just the clouds and the moon).  I trimmed them out with a little border.  

I made a galaxy theme scene with the background again using watercolour with Memento ink refills.  I did a similar card to this one HERE, but this time as I was perusing through my cupboard I found the perfect medium to wash in the silver shimmery colour in the scene with some old Tsukeniko Silver All-Purpose Ink.  It worked perfectly to add in that silvery shimmer after the watercolouring while still being a bit transparent.  




The sentiment is embossed in silver and you can also see the shimmery stars I added using the 3 x 3 Stars CutUps cut with the ICraft Adhesive.  Because it’s a double sided adhesive, I just placed it on the card and then sprinkled it with glittery and it gave me gorgeous glittery stars!   Finished off with some silver cording.  



Here’s another peek at the galaxy background and the shimmery stars.

Oh Christine, aside of the fact that this little penguins are beyond adorable, I'm totally awe struck by the amazing sky you created, it's absolutely gorgeous!!! Looks like a piece of a picture taken by the Hubble Telescope!! It's really incredible you created it all with inks and water.
Thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous and whimsical card.
