Video Tutorial - Creating a Galaxy Background with Watercolor and Lawn Fawn Stamps

Hi everyone!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Today I have a two part video tutorial on how I created a galaxy background with this brand new adorable Upon a Star stamp set from Lawn Fawn.  In Part One, I demonstrate how I created the background with water coloring and distress inks.  In Part Two, I show how I created the grass and how I colored the critters.

And here are some pictures:

And here's the one I created on camera (it's so neat that each time you do this technique, it turns out differently!):

To create the background, I water colored using Salty Ocean,  Peacock Feathers, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot distress inks.  I also spashed some white acrylic paint and some gold and silver paint from Gansai Tambi Starry Colors paint palette.  For the grass, I sponged on Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles distress inks and spritzed some water.  I then put some Black Soot ink on to create a shadow using a sponge dauber.  I used Lawn Fawn dies to cut out my rectangle and my grass.  I colored my fox and my bunny using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  For the fox, I used Deep Red and Brown.  For the Bunny, I used Gray, Light Gray, and Almond Pink.  I then used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I stamped some of the constellations on the background and embossed them with white embossing powder.  I also white embossed the sentiment (also from the stamp set).  Finally, I added some sequins.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by and I'll catch you in the next video!
