Alcohol Inked Galaxy by Mary Polanco

Hello everyone!  Today's project features alcohol inks, making a fun, bold galaxy background.  This was so much fun to make and I LOVE this cute stamp set by Lawn Fawn called Beam Me Up!
I started off inking up my Yupo Paper with different colors of alcohol ink.  I added some alcohol blending solution along the way to mix the colors and I also used a straw to help things along by blowing on the inks.  
 After getting the colors the way I liked, I took some white acrylic paint and put a dab on my clear block.  I added a spritz of water and then splattered the paint on my card using both a paint brush and a toothbrush.....yes a toothbrush!  THAT'S how you get the "millions of stars" look.
I stamped and colored my little aliens and then added googly eyes to the big one and dots of Glossy Accents to the smaller alien.  I backed them on some vellum because they would have gotten lost otherwise.  Lastly, I backed the card panel onto a pink glitter cardstock, and then on the Neenah 110lb white card base, making sure to round the corners of all of the layers.
Thanks so much for crafting with me today! Let me know if you have any questions!!!

See-through Circle Card with Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy by Mary Polanco

Hello everyone!  I'm so glad you are crafting with us as we have a blast with this super easy, but WOW card!  Today's card features Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy Stamps.  I started off the card by stamping and coloring the elephant from the Lawn Fawn Slow Down and Enjoy stamp set. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color them in both warm greys and cool greys.  (I'm saving the warm grey elephant for a future project).
Once my coloring was complete, I worked on the background and made it as simple as I could.   First I ink blended Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick to get an ombre look.  Then I put a Hero Arts Stencil over it to get a tone on tone look.  Lastly, I spritzed the panel with water to get a more distressed look.  Once complete I used a circle die to cut through the inked up panel as well as the Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock.
I placed the front and back of my elephant together using foam dots and nestled him into the circle.  I finished off the card by …
