MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge | DAD

Hello there, today I am back as a guest designer for My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. Today we are using sketch 384. I did change the sketch to be a landscape card and not portrait, but I hope you can still see the design elements from the sketch.

I started off by creating the galaxy background. I took a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and sprayed on some Distress Resist Spray. I let this dry and then using an ink blending tool, blended over various shades of Distress Ink. I used Dusty Concord, Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire, as well as Black Soot. The Distress Resist Spray resisted the ink and left spots to look like stars. I did splatter the piece with some water too, to create more interest. I really like how it turned out!
Once dry, I die cut the piece with the second largest of the A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax dies. The piece was added to a white A2 card base with tape runner. I then took the Dad Die-namics and die cut the capital letters 'dad' three times from white cardstock and then once from silver glitter cardstock. These were stacked up with liquid glue. I also die cut three stars from the Happy Birthday Centrepieces die-namics.
I took one of the sentiments from the All About Dad Stamp Set and stamped this using Versamark Ink on to black cardstock. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. I then cut this in to a strip and cut a banner edge on one side. This was added to the card with foam tape. I then added the 'dad' word/letters above. The stars were added to finish, with foam tape.
