And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Just Us Girls Trend Week #423 - Galaxy Background/Night SkyHello friends!

Hello friends!  Back again with another card for the Just Us Girls Challenge Blog.  This is Trend Week and we are showcasing Galaxy Backgrounds and Night Skies.  My sample features new stamps by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Creative Nugget: Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio, and Wilted Violet Oxide Inks were sponged onto a piece of mixed media card stock.  The colors were well blended before Black Soot Oxide Ink was sponged over all of the colors letting some of the color peek through the black.  The panel was spritzed with water and sprayed with a mixture of Perfect Pearls.  Watered down white acrylic paint was then splattered on creating a night sky full of stars.  Spellbinder Dies were used to make an offset frame. Grass from the Scene Silhouettes: Wetland Grass stamp set was stamped on both the frame and the Galaxy panel.  The little fox from the Scene Silhouettes: Woodland stamp set was black embossed and cut out with my ScanNCut.  The sentiment is from the Inspirational Word Art 2 stamp set and was black embossed on a circle cut with a Taylored Expressions Stitched Circle Die.  A few sparkly gems and sequins were added to the sky to finish the card.
Be sure to hop on over to the Just Us Girls Blog to see more fabulous inspiration from the JUGS Design Team and then play along and add your Galaxy Sky creation for the 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to stop back again next week for another wonderful Just Us Girls Challenge!

Such a terrific galaxy sky, Cathy. I love all the colors that show through the black. The silhouette in front was a great way to frame it and the sentiment is perfect.
