Hi there ...

We have a challenge going on at City Crafter - A Piece of Sky ... The inspiration photo I chose for the challenge inspired me to make a similar card ...
This is the inspiration photo

... And this is my card

I tried various ways to create a galaxy background but the one that worked best for me was to start with a piece of pearlescent black cardOf course not all paints show up on this but trying different ones I found that Tim Holtz Pewter Distress paint worked brilliantly to give a shiny misty effect

It's difficult to photograph but I dabbed some of the pewter paint on one side of the CS and sprayed it well with water and then just moved the CS around allowing the paint to swirl and settle where it wanted 
After drying this off I used Shimmerz paint (Egg Noggin) spray and some Mr Huey's calico white spray

The stamp set is WPlus9 So 80's ... It's a limited edition and if you are in the UK you can buy it at Make the Day Special (click the link)
Here and Here are a couple of links if you'd like to watch ways of creating this type of BG ... I guess you have to find which works best for you - I really like the result of this one

Thanks so much for your visit ... Have a lovely day
