To the stars and back...

A couple of weeks ago Elaine Hughes, aka Marker Geek, posted a tutorial for creating a swirly night time sky with copic markers.  I don't have copics, but I thought the galaxy technique looked neat, so I tried it out using a handful of prismacolor markers.  This is the result.


My night sky still looks a little blotchy, but I was sort of feeling out my color choices as I went.  I added a bit of glitter, to distract from the splotchiness and also because, well...glitter.  Do you really need a reason?  Ultimately, I thought it was a super fun technique, and I'll definitely try it again.  Thanks for posting the tutorial so I could try it out, Elaine!

I added these cutie pie bears from Mama Elephant and ended up with this little scene.

I'm entering the card in 7 Kids College Fund Challenge, which is anything goes and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is Sparkle and Shine.

Thanks for stopping by!
