The Blast Off Die-namics is an obvious choice for showcasing with a dramatic galaxy background, and today, Jessica is sharing her experiment in galaxy-building with distress sprays.

Her vivid, high-contrast, shimmering base is the perfect foil to the colorful rocket. Cutting most of the pieces from white card stock and coloring with markers reduces die cutting and increases your ability to customize each element. Feeling ready to launch into your next project? 3-2-1-BLAST OFF.

Like how you used the tape to hold down the little pieces to color them, cute rocket and your sky turned out great for it, like the use of the resist spray with it, I have only used my distress inks and blending the background with a sponge applicator.
