Using Doodles Paper Playground: Sparkle Blends Intergalactic
Hi everyone. I have a couple of cute tags with an out-of-this-world theme using Doodles Paper Playgrounds Intergalactic sparkle blend. How pretty is this blend!?
I have made a few galaxy backgrounds now but I am still trying to get better at them as I've seen some amazing examples out there. Today's was my favorite so far but I am going to keep practicing :) I started by putting down a few colors of distress oxide inks on watercolor paper and then spraying them with water mixed with perfect pearls. Love the colors but next time I want to cover the cardstock more fully.
Then I used distress oxide black soot to cover sections, then spray with water and heat set it. I did this several times. After I had enough color down, I splattered the cardstock with gold shimmer and white mica watercolor.
I die cut tags out of my galaxy cardstock and white cardstock. Then I adhered the interior of the galaxy to my white cardstock and adhered some circle pouches to the outer tags. I already had a few little space critters colored with copics and die cut out ready to go so I added a little space mouse to the inside of one of my tags.
To create the tags, I used a tape runner along the edge of the interior tag and then put my sparkle blend on the galaxy. Then pressed the top of the tag in place. I added the space dog and kitty to the top. I haven't decided if I am going to use these as tags on presents or as ornaments for my kids. Either way, I left the sentiment off and will write one on the back.
I had so much fun making these little shakers.
Thanks for visiting the blog!
