Q How did you cre­ate your back­grounds?

AWhen you have sim­ple dies that do all the work, you can fo­cus on the back­ground. I used my Gelli Plate and Dis­tress Ox­ide Inks to cre­ate the sky. To add an in­ter­est­ing ef­fect, I chose to stamp the stars and just em­boss some of them. Here, I achieved a mix­ture of sil­ver em­bossed and blue stars.

Q Do you have any top tips to share?

A To cre­ate sil­ver stars, you can use any colour ink with sil­ver em­boss­ing pow­der! You can also use the pa­per you have cut the die from as a tem­plate to ink a dark shadow onto your card and set off your die.
