Those of us of a certain age know the words that follow May the 4th...... even if you are not a Star Wars Fan! It's actually the day before my birthday too!  So our challenge over at Sweet Stampin is any space themed card.  I love this challenge group I'm part of because Wendy always challenges us and I like to try and rise to the challenge and think outside the box.

I started my card using some Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks - I used the following colours:  Salty Ocean, Fossilised Amber, Picked Raspberry, and Peacock Feathers.  Using a sponge I simply added the colours to some water colour paper.  Once they were all added in no particular order I added some water and let them all merge.  I used my heatgun to just fix the colours.  I then added some Tim Holtz Weathered Wood and Black ink all over those colours. It gives a sort of Galaxy Night sky effect.  When it was all dry I added some Liquid pearls and let them dry.

The Moon stamp from Cherry Pie Art Stamps has been embossed in Silver embossing powder.  The La Luna and Light stamps are also from Cherry Pie.  The sentiment at the bottom is from an old SU stamp set In This World.

I then layered this onto some silver paper to continue the shine.

I hope you will join in with the challenge and challenge yourselves to join in with the theme.  I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
