Little Tangles Challenge: Bling Bling

Today I am delighted to be contributing as a guest over on the Little Tangles challenge blog.  I am absolutely over the moon that I was asked to join in! This challenge this week is Bling Bling.  The card I created helped merge my crafty side with my nerdy side!

When Neat and Tangled came out with the A Long Time Ago and Time Warp stamp sets, I didn't even hesitate to snatch them up! They were perfect for this challenge.  To me, nothing is more blingy or sparkly than space and millions of stars! 

I started by using Distress Inks in Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans, Chipped Saphire, and Dusty Concord on the background.  I started with the lightest color and moved darker while randomly placing the color. 

For the stamping, I used VersaMark Ink with Hero Arts white embossing powder to make it pop.  

Silver stars and Wink of Stella were added for the finishing touches. (I *promise* there is Wink of Stella on them- it just doesn't photograph well! I concentrated it in the middle and swiped it in the direction of the space lines.)

After I created the middle panel I matted it onto silver glitter paper and black cardstock.

Here are some close ups.
