OM OM OM Happy World Meditation Day! I sat on a beach this morning, cleared my mind and just enjoyed the moment with sand in my toes.

om eclipse card galaxy background world meditation daySo this card is my dedication to today. Galaxy background and what I used to call inlaid diecutting but is now apparently called “eclipse”.  This is one of the galaxy backgrounds I created with my Gansai Tambi watercolours the other day and btw, when I created them, I had no plans for them whatsoever and this card idea wasn’t even a twinkle in my eye lol.

This is the background I decided to use.  It wasn’t my favourite one from that set, as I didn’t want to cut that one up, so I chose this one from the middle.

I used the Altenew Bold Alphabet die set to cut out the OM letters three times – btw I really like how this background looks on the diecut letters.  I was really tempted to use them on their own in a different card!

But I decided to keep going with my original idea and so I cut out more OMs in white card and stacked and glued them so I had four layers of white card.  I also went through my cardstock to choose a colour to go with the galaxy colours.  This one from Gina K was quite a good match to the teal paint colour.

Here it is with the white diecuts in place – I also like it with just the white against the background lol.

I glued the watercoloured diecuts on top of the white stack and popped the little middles of the Os back in place.

And here’s the “eclipse” look in action. I think the diecutting and eclipse actually makes this galaxy look better lol.

And that’s the finished card.  That was so much fun!
