Fresh Take on "Seeing Stars"!

Hello friends!

You have probably seen this stamp set "Seeing Stars" with many galaxy-related cards already. The pattern paper from the July Card Kit are patriotic and masculine-themed. However, this stamp set can be fun/ feminine, too.
when we're together...

I combined using the stencil and stamp in this design.  With some ink-blending, I applied inks to the hearts. Instead of coloring, I stamped the heart image and cut out the heart part on a piece of copy paper. Then I used the NEGATIVE paper as the mask and applied inks. This is GREAT for people who do not have enough copics (like me) or do not care for coloring....also, it's a easy way to stretch your inks. I also love the gradient of colors in the hearts that the inks give.


I hope that my card would perhaps gives you some more inspiration.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love the gradient you made on the constellation hearts, too. I reaaly makes them look ethereal and, yes, feminine.
