I love the gazing up to the same stars sentiment so I decided to make a night sky. First I masked off a bit of the bottom and a frame around the top and sides. Then I layered Distress inks in the rectangle I made, I used Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint, then added Black Soot on top. I added water on top to blend the colors, then hit it with a heat gun. I continued to add Black Soot, water and then heating it until I was happy with the look.

Next, I used white acrylic paint and flicked the paint. With a dried wipe I dabbed at the droplets, it kind of flattens out the platters. When that was dried I went in with a sparkle pen and added sparkly dots for a little shimmer.

Then I stamped the cute mouse on the cup and used Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, Tea Dye and Walnut Stain to color the cup and mouse. With white ink, I stamped the It Helps to Know We're Gazing Up at The Same Stars.

With the When I Miss You ... sentiment I masked off the When and stamped the rest at the bottom of the cup and then stamped just the When above the rest of the sentiment. I fussy cut the image and then added it the card with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop on the hop is the wonderful Katie Brooks!
