Into orbit

Unusually for me, I can't think of anything much to say about this card - it didn't turn out on paper the way it looks in my mind's eye, so I'm feeling grumpy with it!

I sponged blue ink around the top of the card, and a little around the other edges, then very lightly spritzed the sponge with water and dabbed it here and there on the sponged area. Then I stamped the random dot pattern (a very old Anitas stamp) using a glue pad and scattered white glitter over it, and used the blue ink to stamp the sentiment. The sun and planet are cut using Dies R Us dies.

I am sharing this with

  1. I like this card. Love the sparkle! Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  2. I think this is lovely, really eye catching with that sparkle from the glitter and the cheerful sun looks great! The background is fab too, with the lightly mottled effect. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  3. Your dabbled sky looks so pretty Jane. LOVE all the sparkle too. Thanks for sharing at CAS Mix Up!

  4. Your sky is amazing, Jane! How clever to use water on the sponge! I love the look and the glitter! Great primary colors too! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Mix Up!

  5. Pretty sponged sky for your die cut sun and planet. Great idea to stamp your spots in a glue pad and add glitter for such a pretty glittery sky. TFS and joining us at CAS Mix UP, Jane.

  6. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at

  7. Well it might not be how you intended Jane but it's bold, fun and eye-catching. Certainly meets our criteria at Less is More and thanks for playing along with us this week. Sarah

  8. Super card and like that it's kind of CAS. Great for a guy. Thanks for joining us at the Crafty Creations Challenges for our latest challenge. Good luck and join us again soon. Hugs, Barbara {Crafty Creations Challenges}

  9. I think your sky looks great, lovely effect with the sponging and added sparkle. And a wonderful way of using our challenge colours this week.
