I came across this adorable stamp set from Newton’s Nook called Cosmic Newton..and I had to have it!! I decided to play with my distress crayons to make a starry background, using a stencil I created and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.
This is a card I created during my playtime today, I love using watercolor pencils to color in my stamps. You can find a video on the technique I use at the end of this post.

Next take a piece of white cardstock, 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ and fold it.
Then I cut a piece of red cardstock 4″ x 5-1/4″ and adhered to the front of the card blank.
Next I cut a piece of white watercolor paper and painted the top with gesso. I colored the page with distress crayons and smeared it with water to get the background. I placed the stencil over the background and lifted the color by pressing a babywipe into the stenciled stars. You can watch the technique I used in this video.
After the background paper is done cut this down to 3-3/4″ x 5″, and adhere to the card.
Next I took my Lawn Fawn grass die and cut out a hill with green cardstock. To give it some depth I colored it with 2 lighter shades of distress crayon.
I stamped the designs onto white cardstock using my new Tim Holtz Stamping Platform which I’m finding awesome! I then colored in the stamped images with colored pencils using the technique in the video below.
The technique for coloring the image can be seen in this video.
Stamp the inside with your favorite verse!
