A Long Time Ago......
I meant to make this over Christmas break in honor of the release of the new Star Wars movie, but didn't manage to get it done until now.
I'm using my A Long Time Ago stamp set from Neat & Tangled. I've done these space scenes before, but this time I wanted to go for more of a galaxy feel as opposed to a the general star field.
I used my trusty Kuretake Gansai watercolors. The great thing about these sky scenes is that since there's a lot of dark and splatter and whatnot, it's very hard to overwork it, you can continue to go back and 'mess' with it more than painting florals or landscapes will allow, and there was a fair amount of messing with this one, but I'm happy with how it turned out.
Oh, and the inside of the card has the 'you were born' sentiment from the set in it.
Have you seen the new Star Wars movie yet? I haven't. We aren't big movie-goers. I prefer to watch movies at home on the big TV with plenty of snacks that I didn't pay $20 for. We did, however, watch Episode 4 (right after the Minions movie) on New Year's Eve with the kids. And Carina got 'Obi Kenobi's' light saber for Christmas, so I think more episodes are in our future.
Hope you're having a great Wednesday!
