Out of This World Birthday Shaker Card - Doodles Paper Playground

Out of This World Birthday

Today is my birthday!
Since it is my birthday, I made the best birthday card with my favorite things!
Galaxy, glitter, stars and sequins!


Galaxy background first!!
I decided to use the alcohol ink paper with micro glaze for this background.

First I laid down my splotches of color and sealed them with the glaze.

Next I added two layers of Black Soot

I added more of the colors on top to kinda get rid of the sharp edges on the color.

Every galaxy needs stars!
I first did just some water flecks with some perfect pearl water and then
I added some flecks from my Finetec Iridescent paint set.

After everything was dry I buffed the panel with glaze. . . I love how it turned out!

I thought it still needed more stars so I diluted a little bit of gesso and flicked it onto the panel. 
I know that I just put a waterproof coat on my panel but the gesso dried just fine.

While my galaxy was drying I colored my images. 
I used matching Distress Inks and added a little wink of Stella to each one.

I die cut a banner and white heat embossed my sentiment.

I used the small stitched star frame from Lawn Fawn.
I decided to put the frame back into the base panel and love how it looks.

I added my piece of acetate and a double layer of foam tape to the back of my top panel.

I added a black panel to my card base and measured out my sequins.
I place my top panel on the card.

Lastly I added all my images and my sentiment banner!

I love how this card turned out!
It is one of my favorites!

For this card I used the Sparkle Blend Bubble Gum Ice from 
Doodles Paper Playgrounds new August release. 

I am really loving the flat glitter sequins and the stars in this mix are just great! 
They are my favorite new addition to the sparkle blends this release!

There are more great Sparkle Blends and a large assortment of items for all your crafty projects over at White Rose Crafts!
