Dark Nights and Bright Stars

Hello sweet friends!  God uses the struggles in our life to make us shine more brightly for him.  As we go through these trials with grace Jesus gets all the glory!  I love this quote from the Inspirational Word Art 2 stamp set available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.

 A galaxy sky seemed the natural choice for a background for this quote.  Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, Cracked Pistachio, and Wilted Violet Oxide Inks were sponged onto a piece of mixed media card stock.  The colors were well blended before Black Soot Oxide Ink was sponged over all of the colors letting some of the color peek through the black.  The panel was spritzed with water and sprayed with a mixture of Perfect Pearls.  Watered down white acrylic paint was then splattered on creating a night sky full of stars.  Spellbinder Dies were used to make an offset frame. Grass from the Scene Silhouettes: Wetland Grass stamp set was stamped on both the frame and the Galaxy panel.  The little fox from the Scene Silhouettes: Woodland stamp set was black embossed and cut out with my ScanNCut.  The sentiment is from the Inspirational Word Art 2 stamp set and was black embossed on a circle cut with a Taylored Expressions Stitched Circle Die.  A few sparkly gems and sequins were added to the sky to finish the card.  I'm also posting this card over at the Just Us Girls Challenge Blog.

The stamp sets used to make this card are available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store.  (**LOVE the new Scene Silhouettes stamp sets**)
