Horoscope by Amanda Pink


Hi Everyone

Welcome to my Thursday weekly post of creativity.
Creative time has been somewhat lacking this week so todays project is a quick and easy make. 
Its a 'horoscope' art panel that may pair well with the 'Over the Moon' project I created earlier this year which you can see here
The products and techniques I've used on both these projects are the same so as I've explained a lot of the 'how to' in the 'Over the Moon' post I will just do a quick recap of the steps today.

As always the products used are listed at the foot of this post. 

The central panel is a That's Crafty! white/greyboard tag #8 with the tag top cut away. 
 It is covered with one of the designer papers from 'Under the Stars' paper pad and the paper is sealed with matte medium. 
Working with a ' horoscope' stencil I stenciled the design onto the paper using texture paste sprinkled with some Baked Velvet Embossing power. The panel was set to one side for a short while to give the texture paste some drying time. Once it showed signs of drying I used a heat gun to melt the embossing powder. 
This gives a kind of 'faux enamel' look to the stencilling. 

I also splattered some copper paint  in amongst the golden stars of the paper design and the white textured embossing.  

To finish off the panel the sides were  edged with white paint and the panel was matt n layered onto gold, black and white cardstock.
