I'm just loving these Distress Oxide ink pads! I created the galaxy background by sponging Distress Oxide inks seedless preserves and peacock feathers in a few areas on black card. I watered down white paint, dabbed an old toothbrush in it and pulled back the bristles then flicked it over the card. I added a few more dots using a white gel pen and glue some silver star sprinkle on it too.
The planets were coloured by applying yellow and orange shades of Distress Oxide inks on a non-porous surface, add water then dabbed the circles in it, drying between each application. I coloured the spaceboy with a selection of Distress Oxides ink pads using water and my favourite and the best paintbrushes from http://www.mybrush.com.au/
The stamp set is from You and Your Stamps, one of my favourites!
It's a very easy way to create a galaxy background, try it, use different colours and experiment!
