Today I have created a pair of cards with a background created with Brusho color crystals. These are fairly new to me and I may have applied too many crystals. The colors are so vibrant I keep forgetting less is more. But then, space is pretty dark, isn't it?
I am a big fan of sparkle and shimmer, so after I shook out the paint crystals onto Tim Holtz watercolor paper, I spritzed the paper with Psst Shimmer Sparkle. It's difficult to see in the photos, but it adds a lovely shine to the paper.
I added the stars with a white pen. The spacemen and planets were colored with Copics.
I love these little guys and will be sure to use them again and again. I think next I will try to create a moon for them to be standing on.
