Always Thoughts - Sometimes I Just Look Up - Celestial Sky

Yogi here today with a tutorial on how I made the "Celestial Sky" and using one of the newest stamps from Quietfire Design. "Sometimes I Just Look Up..." loving this one and the calligraphy contrast of the "smile" in the quote just makes me smile. BIG GRIN.

I'm also using a couple of the A Way With Words dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Always" and "Warm Thoughts" also available on Quietfire Deisgn HERE and HERE

I'm also using part of another quote "I Shut My Eyes..." for the "in my" 

This is going to be a long post. The tutorial is below the card. Click on any image to enlarge. Enjoy.


Scored, and folded my gold metallic card to create the easel.
Created the Celestial Sky (see step by step pics below)
Adhered some Sookwang tape to my white cardstock and die cut a star (Spellbinders). Applied Stickles "Star Dust"dry  glitter, then adhered to sky.

Stamped the quote using Distress "Picket Fence" and embossing with white embossing powder.
Adhered sky to card front adding some white rhinestone stars.

On the floor:
Die cut the words "Always" and "Thoughts" (on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE) from white cardstock, inked with Versamark and embossed with Pearlescent embossing powder.

Cut a piece of the white, scored and folded in half, inked the front with Distress "Black Soot" and adhered the word "Always" to the edge, then adhered to floor to act as the stopper.

Used a stamp positioner to stamp the "In My" using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
Stamped the moon (Faerie Song) using Versafine "Blue Lagoon" and embossed with Emerald Creek "Blue Sparkle" embossing powder.
Adhered the "Thoughts" die cut.

Sponge "Mustard Seed" in various places around the edge and working toward the middle on white cardstock.

Sponge "Picked Raspberry" over some of the yellow and in various white spots.

Sponge "Broken China" all over the edges and towards the middle.
Sponge "Chipped Sapphire" around all the edges and also working towards the center, leaving a lighter area.


Sponge "Black Soot" heavily in each corner and working around all the edges and towards the center, leaving the center very light.

Sprinkle water all over, leave for about 30 seconds, then blot up. Dry


Mix up some white ink or acrylic paint or gesso. I used my watered down Copic White Opaque ink on my craft sheet with a couple more drops of water to make it liquid. Dabbed my toothbrush in the wetness and flicked the ink over my sky to get very tiny dots. Used the paintbrush to flick some larger dots.
