Galaxy Skies

Hi there! Josefine is back with her second project to inspire you today…





I bet you have tried several ways of creating a galaxy sky background. I did too. With water colors, Ken Oliver Color Bursts and now I also tried it with Paper Artsy Infusions. And what to do with it? Yes! Using it for the new Visible Image Zodiac stamp sets. For today’s card, I used the Gemini one. Why? Well, I’m a Gemini 😀

To show you how easy it is to create a galaxy background with the Paper Artsy Infusions, here is a quick tutorial. I picked a mix of blue, purple and pink colors. The exact ones are listed below.


I sprinkled a mix of purple and pink onto a piece of card stock. To reduce the mess, I put the paper into a tupperware box. Then I spritzed water on top using my awesome super fine mister.

While the paper was still wet, I sprinkled the other colors on top till I had the saturation that I wanted. Then I heat set it. There was still so much gorgeous color left, so I decided to dip the paper into the left over color inside the box. I’m so glad that I did that, because it added the perfect texture.

I needed a few stars, so I sprinkled some white paint all over the paper.

Next up, I wanted to stamp the Gemini star sign. I wanted to make sure that it sparkles and shines in all its gorgeousness. The Emerald Creek Gold Sparkle embossing powder was the perfect pick for my sparkling focal point.

Then I stamped some of the sayings to the inside of the card.

At the end I adhered the galaxy background onto a black piece of card stock and both onto a white card base.

I hope you enjoyed my super easy galaxy background with the Visible Image Zodiac stamp for the Gemini sign. 🙂

It’s an 8’x8’ canvas and I’ve used a range of acrylic paint from Amsterdam and Pebeo dyna paints. It’s basically a mix of colours surrounded by dark navy and black and heavily flicked in white. The stamps were heat embossed using sparkling silver wow powder. The images were highlighted with gems and hey presto your own little galaxy!
