The Seeing Stars kit stamp set has gorgeous constellations which in my mind make quick and easy guy cards. Our family has 3 wonderful men; my husband and our two sons and yet predominantly I have lots of cards with a feminine twist, probably because those appeal to me! In an aim to rectify the balance I created these two constellation cards. If you search ‘constellation’ on Pinterest you see lots of lovely indigo puddles of watercolor and so inspired by this I white heat embossed the images on pieces of Arches watercolor card. Using the Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink cube from the kit I patted the ink on to an acrylic block and then picked it up with a damp brush to start the watercolor puddles. I did add in some Indigo to get more depth and Silver too for sparkle and contrast.

When dry I added a few white gel pen dots for stars, cut the panel with a Stitched Rectangle and stamped sentiments from the Seeing Stars set in black ink.

I also cut kraft panels using the Tim Holtz motif resist papers; these have a lovely subtle patterns – stars on one and numbers on the other.

I layered the kraft panels with foam adhesive on to Ivory card bases and then the watercolor pieces on top. To embellish I added a simple twine bow with a cream sequin star to finish.

Finally I lined some kraft envelopes with a couple of the Pebbles pattern papers.

CATCHING UP

I’m just returning from a couple of weeks away with the family so I’ve some catching up to do! Summer always impinges on my spare time and I must apologise if you are waiting for me to answer a comment, email or such. I do read everything, but especially at this time of year it can take me a while to get on top of things.
