Constellations Card Set

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Constellations Card Set.

I made these one layer, monochrome cards with a gorgeous Hero Arts 'Reverse Constellation' background woodblock stamp.

Before I started making cards, I tested stamp on a scrap paper. I inked the stamp with Distress Ink and pressed the paper on it. Stamped impression was not good. Last year, Jennifer McGuire shared a very helpful tip on her blog: Getting Clear Stamped Images. I tried that and a result was excellent. :o)

I inked the stamp with VersaMark Watermark Ink, wiped it with my palm, inked the stamp with Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch and pressed a top folded white card base on the stamp. I removed the card base from the stamp and left it dry on air.

My first idea was to make only one card, but I liked it so much and I made three more. I cleaned the stamp with wet microfiber cloth between stamping and repeated inking and stamping process previously described for each card.

The stamp is larger than card bases I used, which allowed me to stamp different impressions by pressing card bases in different corners of the stamp. I also rotated the stamp.

I wanted all these stars to shimmer, so I traced all constellations and stars (all withe parts) with Clear Wink of Stella and my card set was finished. :o)

Dimensions of cards: 95 mm x 133 mm (3 3/4" x 5 1/4")
