Little Tangles combined with Friday Mashup


When I saw the Friday Mashup challenge I knew I had to play! I have in teh past admired those galaxy backgrounds, but had no idea how to make them. but - Friday Mashup provided two links (thanks Ladies!) to youtube videos - one by Kristina Werner and one by Dawn. I did not have the right supplies foe either technique, but I learned enough and kind of made my own with the stuff I had at hand. The other cool coincidence was that  the challenge over at Little Tangles is Inspired by the design team. I remembered Jill making a card recently (see below), that fit what I had in mind.....

So long story short - here is my card:


I am quite happy with the result, after all it was my first try.  I used the Neat and Tangled set Time Warp, the sentiment is from A Long time ago. I white embossed them first and while the embossing powder was still hot I added glow in the dark WOW embossing powder to it and embossed it again. And it worked fabulously as you can see:



Also added glitter apper stars (dies from Simon Says) and a thin strip of turquoise paper on the side. I also stamped a strip of black paper with white ink - the sentiment is from the set Party Dots.



I am also adding this  card to The Snippets Playground - add a snippet (glitter stars and the black and turquoise strip)
Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday
