Out of This World THANK YOU Card
by Sara Cook


I have a eye catching thank you card for you today using the new Grand Galaxy3D embossing folder.  This technique to create the 3D background can be used for any occasion.

3D Background:

I highly recommend using only Memory Box water color paper for this technique.  It is the only water color paper I know that will hold up to what I did to it.  it is pretty amazing the paper did not rip or tear and stayed flat.  Spray water Memory Box watercolor paperon the paper and then lightly add Nuevo Shimmer Powders  Solar Flare, Blue Blits and Catherine wheel.  Spritz with more water and add more powder under you get areas of yellow, red, and blue.  Let dry.

Ink blend with Distress Black Shoot ink, leaving some of the yellow, red, and blue areas open.  Let completely dry. Emboss with the Grand Galaxy folder   Take a sand block and sand way the ink from the raised surfaces.  For me not enough of the color would sand off.  I tried adding water with a brush to just the .planets and dab off with a paper towel.  If not enough color comes of I then sanded the wet paper to remove the ink.  The paper did not tear nor rip in this process!  This is why I recommend the Memory Box water color paper for this technique.  Let dry.  Then take a gold gel pe and color over some of the stars.
