GUEST DESIGNER at Outlawz -Twisted Thursday – With a Twist – Stars – June 1st

Hello everyone. I was invited to be a guest designer for the month of June by the DT team at Outlawz. You can join for free! They have a fabulous blog – full of challenges, tutorials, forum, freebies, gallery and more. I am designing for their Thursday Twist Challenges. This challenge is “open” with a added twist each week. This week’s Twist is “Stars.” To find out more about this fabulous group click on the link below.

The Outlawz Challenges

I made two cards to mark the challenge. I started with making the galaxy background. I used Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 watercolors. After taping my watercolour paper to a board, using a wide brush, I applied clear water to the paper. Next I randomly added various bright colours: yellow, orange, red, blue, purple. Once they dried I coloured the background with dark blue and black leaving small bits of the bright colours to show through. I let dry again. For the final touch I splattered white over the background to create stars. I set aside to dry.

Card 1

For my first card, I did a space theme. I used Hambo‘s digi stamp, Space Boy Set. I coloured him with Copic marks and fussy cut him and the planets out. Next I glued them on the background. I added mini die cut stars from SSS. I mounted the background on black card stock. The final step was adding a sentiment by Whimsy Stamps called, “Vintage Sentiments – Digital Sentiments.”

 Card 2

For my second card, I did a nursery rhyme theme. I used Whimsy Stamps digi stamp, Over The Moon Cow. I coloured him with Copic marks and fussy cut him and the moon out. Next I glued them on the background. I added mini die cut stars from SSS. I mounted the background on black card stock. The final step was adding a sentiment by Whimsy Stamps called, “Vintage Sentiments – Digital Sentiments.”
