AAA Cards ~ Challenge #249

I noticed that AAA Cards is holding a design team call and their current challenge is


Here's AAA's Mood Board for inspiration

I couldn't resist. I love clean and simple cards and I had an idea. Here's my card

For my card, I used My Monthly Hero Kit December 2022 (Hero Arts). For the background, I started by randomly ink blending using distress inks - mustard seed, picked raspberry, peacock feathers and oval ink blending brushes on a white A2 card panel. I then stamped the background stamp using Concord & 9's Midnight ink. I used my MISTI and had to stamp a few times to get good coverage. I like how the ink blended colors peek through. I stamped the astronaut on the star and the star "contrails" using the Kit's stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I added color with Copic markers - B12, B24, BG10, C2, E25, E33, E50, R11, RV23, Y06, Y15. I used the complementary dies to die cut the images. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on a white A2 card panel with Concord & 9's Midnight ink. I die cut the background using a My Favorite Things Stitched Square STAX die-namics die. I adhered the background with double-sided tape to the white card panel and glued the star "contrail" and astronaut on the star to the background square. To complete my card, I adhered the panel to a white A2 card base.
