Starry Night Sky - SUO Challenge

Hello stampers!

Today's post is for the SUO Challenge - Make it Geometrical.  My geometrical shape if you didn't guess it, is STARS!

Starry Night using Stampin'Up! punches and ink
Something about this card just makes me wish for cool nights and star gazing with the family. It really came together pretty easy, the most difficult part was getting all the ink layered onto the card and making sure they blended. So the recipe for this card is as follows:  Using a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White, I started sponging on Soft Sky and Pool Party ink working my way up with Night of Navy and a touch of Elegant Eggplant at the top. I just kept layering on the colors until I was happy with the transition.  I wanted Silver Stars (but don't currently have any silver foil paper), I smooshed versamark ink onto some WW cardstock and embossed it with the Silver Embossing powder then punched out the stars with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch and a banner for my sentiment.  I actually embossed the sentiment onto the banner as well once it had cooled.  I added some small pearls and little dots with the Uni-ball White Gel Pen.  The standard A2 Whisper White card base is layered with a piece of black cardstock cut at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I attached the stars with gluedots and popped a few up using dimensionals.  The sentiment was from Sweet Stuff and I popped that up as well.  I left the inside blank for my personal message.  All the products used for this card are linked below.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks for stopping by.

Until next time....
