Card with crazy dog on silver moon

For our September challenge over at Country View Challenges - Metal - I have chosen the silver from the metals. And I created a card with silver moon, silver stars and silver spatters. 

For this card I mostly used Tim's product but for the background I took many shades of blue acrylic paints and I coloured the 300g watercolour paper with them using brush and sponge as well.

I cut out the silver from chipboard and the stars from the 300g paper. I painted these elements silver (both sides).

When they were dry I heat embossed with silver embossing powder. 

The background paper was also spritzed with the Ranger Distress Spray Stain (Brushed Pewter). 

First I heat embossed the text directly onto the card but like this it wasn't highlighted enough so I cut out a black rectangle and I made the silver text again.

What I used:

Sizzix Framelits Die, Rectangle

Sizzix Bigz Die, Crescent Moon&Stars by Tim Holtz (658716)

Stampers Anonymous, Crazy Talk by Tim Holtz (SMS236)

Stampers Anonymous, Mini Crazy Cats&Dogs by Tim Holtz (CMS272)

Ranger Distress Spray Stain, Brushed Pewter

Ranger Embossing Powder, Silver

Ranger Distress Markers

Die-Namics die, Pierced Rectangle

DecoArt Dazzling Metallic Paint, Shimmering Silver
