Hi Crafty Friends,
We have a real treat for you today! Rosali of I Love Stamping (IG: @ilovelstamping) has created an AWESOME galaxy scene using Lawn Fawn’s Magic Iris and Upon A Star stamps and dies. Rosali’s sky is magical, don’t you think?
To start, let’s make the galaxy background. Use your colors of choice (in my case yellow, turquoise, and dark blue) and bring them onto dry watercolor paper using a larger brush. Tap them on and avoid mixing the colors too much. Let the first layer dry and add a second layer to deepen the colors. Then, put the panel into a box and use a toothbrush to splatter white acrylic paint. Use a small paintbrush to add gold splatters. Finetec gold paint (see supply list below) is excellent for this.
When dry, adhere a black border of meadow grasses cut from black cardstock, using the Lawn Fawn Meadow Grass borders die Now cut the entire panel using the Lawn Fawn Magic Iris add-on. Use Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot around the edges to make them really dark!
The next step was to create these adorable critters. I used ‘Upon A Star” stamp set and colored them with watercolor markers by Winsor Newton but you can use Copic markers or any other way you like to color critters. When done, the critters were fussy cut out with detail scissors.
With most of the details complete, I followed the steps given in Lawn Fawn’s video (view here) for assembly, using a dark blue paper for the back, then heat embossing the sentiment. The heart star was heat embossed with gold embossing powder onto a piece of turquoise (Robin’s Egg) cardstock.
The final steps were to add the cute critters, color in the star on the heart with gold pen and add a yellow ‘banner’ stamped “happy birthday”.
