There are so many different ways to create galaxy backgrounds, but I have never found a sparkly way than what I am sharing today on the Imagine Crafts YouTube Channel! I am sharing how to use the new MBoss embossing powders to create heat embossed galaxy backgrounds that are so shiny and glittery they are truly stunning! You can watch the full video tutorial down below!
The great thing about this technique is you can get two different backgrounds with two different looks just by using your leftover product! I chose three different MBoss powders, Shimmering Night Sky, New Years Eve, and Princess Party and a white cardstock panel. After covering the panel in Versamark ink I started sprinkling on “patches” of each color, saving the New Years Ever for last and filling in all the gaps with it. I let the excess powder run off and then heat set. I did go in for a second layer for even more color and shine!
Because you are mixing the embossing powders together, you can’t funnel them back into their bags without contaminating the entire thing. So that’s where using all that leftover comes into play! I covered another panel with Versamark, added a little Hologram MBoss to the mix, and them covered my panel with the new “custom” mix. I did this twice for a nice even coat. This creates a more subtle galaxy background, but it’s still beautiful and the glitter takes center stage!
On both backgrounds I added a splatter of “stars” with white acrylic paint and Irresistible spray. Then I finish both cards with Rinea Foil moons, sentiments, and rocket ships!
I absolutely love these cards and how the backgrounds turned out! They’re super quick and you could easily whip up a set for a gift or to have on hand for upcoming birthdays!
