Beyond The Skies..

Good Evening,

We have a super stunning card by Jane Tyrrell here on the blog this evening! You may have already seen this when we launched our NEW ‘Zodiac stamps’ but Jane is here to tell you how she created her incredible galaxy background…

Today I am blogging my sample made with the awesome Zodiac Aries stamp set from the new “Written in the stars” collection. I am Aries myself so perhaps this is an early birthday card for me?

When I first saw these sets I immediately thought of creating an “out of this world” scene to showcase my set. I look around me all the time for inspiration from Mother Nature but I do also love gazing up at the skies…so beautiful.
I also love watching the moon and took these shots last year in Rhodes from our favourite beach restaurant.

Apologies that I was too busy making my samples to take process photos so I will talk you through it…

I made an inky background using distress oxides using the wrinkle free technique.
When it was dry I embossed the moon from the Believe in Unicorns stamp set using white and blue embossing powders.

I stamped and embossed the large ram head in gold

and the words in white

I then linked everything up with the fab constellation star stamps, also in the set. using rose gold ink.

So those descriptions of Aries….
does it describe me…
…you’d better ask those who know me well! ?

Such unique stamps, always.

Back soon,

Bye for now,
Jane x

This card is incredible Jane! I think the best oxides galaxy background we’ve seen!! The gold stamping looks fabulous against it.. thank you ♡
