I cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than my card blank and used distress inks to create a night sky background. For the background, I first covered the card with spots of bright colours and then covered the entire sheet with black ink. I sprayed some water on, added bigger drops in places and lifted off some colour with a paper towel. I added water to some white paint and flicked it over my panel to create the look of stars. finally I stamped a moon image in the top corner and coloured it using a white pen. I glued this flat on to the centre of my card blank. I die cut a frame from black cardstock and funky foam and glued these layers together. I then glued this to the card blank. I stamped my sentiment onto some green cardstock and cut this into a banner shape. I used some more funky foam to glue this onto my card. I stamped, coloured and die cut the bear image. I used foam tape to attach this to my card and give it even more dimension. the final touch was a couple of silver confetti stars to complete the sketch.
