Lately, it seems like everyone has their eyes turned towards the stars. Meteor showers, solar & lunar eclipses have us gazing upward; on earth, galaxy print & holographic material dots the fashion landscape. Like everyone else, I’m feeling starry-eyed. With this in mind, I came up with a quick tutorial to create constellation-inspired greeting cards.
Materials: Ink pad or paint, fine-tipped pen, potato, star-guide, paper to print upon
Rather than painting stars, I opted to create my own biodegradable stamps using a potato, in order to allow for size, shape & texture of stars to remain similar. Creating potato stamps is an easy process; simply take the appropriate sized chunk of potato, and carve out your desired design. Once completed, you’re ready to stamp!
Use a star guide to map out your desired constellation, or create your own! I chose to use a metallic paint in order to give these cards a bit of sparkle, but any color will do.
