I have four designs today using Design by Ryn's beautiful Celtic Stars. Each star is available individually, cling mounted and they are all part of the unmounted Winter Collection. These amaxing designs are hand drawn by the very talented Ryn.
My first design features Celtic Star 1 (currently on sale 50% off this month).
I started the background by stamping a small star from the Celtic Star Set with white pigment ink and embossing with clear. The colour is a mix Dylusions spray and Distress inks. I used a Memory Box stencil to create the small circles with pigment ink and glitter embossing powder. I painted with Crackle paint over top. The Celtic Star was embossed with silver and painted with Tombow markers.
Next up is Celtic Star 2:
The background is Tattered Rose Distress Spray. I used a Memory Box stencil and Tea Dye Distress Ink to create the pattern. I also stamped along the edge with retired Climbing Vine.
Next is Celtic Star 3:
The background looks like a Gelli Plate print to me, but it's not. I used this sheet to 'mop up' ink off the background of the top card. it created blotches where the embossing resisted the ink. I also used the top of the stencil that I used on the top card turned over and stamped onto the background. The star was embossed with silver and painted with Tombow markers.
And finally is Celtic Star 4, also on sale this month, the background is a cleaner style:
I used pigment inks blended over stars that were stamped with white ink. I used the darker ink to stamp again in the background. It's hard to see the 'ghost' effect in this photo above. The star was stamped with Cobalt Archival ink and coloured with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink (using water on an Acrylic sheet., I 'need' the spray in this colour :)).
And here is a close up of Celtic Star 1 and the background where you can see the effect of the Distress Crackle paste:
The sentiments are by Chocolate Baroque.
