VIDEO: Inked Night Sky + WPlus9 Product Release Close-Up

Hello! Today’s video shares a fun way to create an inked night sky… along with a Product Release Close-Up featuring the newest WPlus9 products.

[All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. To watch the video in HD on YouTube, click HERE.]

I love a fun, inky background. In this video, I use a combination of products to create a night sky scene. I started by creating Embossing Paste stars on white cardstock using the Hero Arts Stars stencil After adding lots of Distress Ink on top of the entire piece once it was dry, I applied drips of various mixes of water, Perfect Pearls and Hero Arts Unicorn Mist. All together, the layers and colors give a fun look of dimension…

The fabulous WPlus9 Lucky Stars sentiment is perfect for this card, so I white heat embossed it on vellum along with die cut glitter paper stars.

Check out how the Embossing Paste stars don’t ink as much (with the Distress Inks) as the background… allowing them to stand out. Love this. So very, very cool.

  1. I love this background! So very pretty…. and lots of fun to play and create!
    I have recently started my own crafting blog and have created a section for “Blogs I read” I was wondering if you had a badge available so that I could link others back to you. Thank you! You are an inspiration! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wow!! Another great card! Does mixing your distress inks ruin the colors? I want to keep my floors pure so I’m hesitant to mix them like you did. Do you clean your sponge afterwards? Thanks, your an inspiration! -sarah

  3. This is really beautiful, and I, too, love a lot of the new WPlus9 releases! I wanted to say, for those who have asked about modeling paste…I have used it for years. The regular stuff…doesn’t work AT ALL for these techniques. However, Liquitex brand, is what I’m familiar with, has the “light” modeling paste – it’s the stuff that feels like the jar is empty when you pick it up…anyway, it does everything you can do with Embossing Paste (and no, it doesn’t raise up and bubble when you heat it, as long as you let it dry first), EXCEPT, it accepts Distress Inks really well. So I kind of look at it as a cross between the the two. It has more of the texture like the EP…it’s not as smooth as the TP, I don’t think…but I like that texture. It goes on through stencils perfectly, takes embossing powders wonderfully, and takes all of the inks/paints in the Distress line just great. I love that I can get it in a giant container at some of the big box stores and use a coupon, or at Blick at a good discount. It lasts mea long time hat way, and if I teach a class, I don’t go through so much. Just wanted to share. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Hi Jennifer,
    You are so inspirational! I love all the cards you do, they are awesome! I’m actually thinking about getting the peerless water colors but haven’t done it quite yet. Hopefully soon but I just loved the owl card, so cute!
    Thanks for sharing,
    Mary Jane

  5. Just watched your tutorial on the night sky and it was just awesome. I love how you used the 3 different colored of distressed inks to achieve that beautiful night sky. ๐Ÿ˜€ Your are so inspiring.
    Thank you xxx
