Spinner Card - galaxy




This is a spinner card, the Earth rotates around the sun.
It was made for a 30th birthday, 
inspired by the words on the party invite of
celebrating 30 rotations around the sun.




Below: pictures of the home made "galaxy" paper -
my second attempt! 
The first try was used for a holiday card
that I'll share in December. 
Below are a couple of photos
from the first background in progress
and a very basic how-to. 


I randomly water colored assorted ink colors 
onto watercolor paper, being careful not to overlap.
I used dye refills, Stampin' Up! brand, and an aquapainter.

I then brushed on Night of Navy ink refill,
watered down a bit.

It dried a lot lighter than when I first applied the 
Night of Navy ink, so I added a little more.



I splattered white craft paint onto
it using an old toothbrush once it 
was completely dry
(not shown in this photo).

It was very messy and didn't turn out
quite as I had hoped. It was my first try,
so maybe if I make a few more
(or use different supplies) they'll be better.


Thanks for looking =)
