G is for Galaxy

Last week I was very honoured to be crowned
Queen of Snark
at The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.

As Queen of Snark I have been asked to be a guest designer
at this weeks challenge
 G is for Galaxy

  As the torn paper stamp was new, it was still sitting on my desk and as I looked at it, 
an idea formed in my head.

I cut ivory card 140mm x 280mm, scored and folded to form a square card.
A black mat 130mm x 130mm was also cut, 
along with a piece of book paper 120mm x 120mm.

Using 'jet black' Archival Ink, I stamped the torn paper image onto the book paper,
and cut away the inside. 
 I stamped it a second time onto ivory card, blending 'pumice stone' Distress Ink over the image.   I fussy cut the bent over parts of the torn paper, and glued them onto the book paper, so that it looks like the underside of the paper.

The TARDIS image was stamped with black ink and coloured with Prismacolor pencils.
Clear Wink of Stella  was added to the windows and the light on top of the box.
After the TARDIS was fussy cut, I added Glossy Accents to the door panels and set it aside to dry.

Before everything was adhered together, I did a little experimenting with a milky way  technique to peep through the torn paper.  After a couple of attempts I was happy with how it looked so the book paper was adhered to the black mat, the TARDIS was added using a wobbly thingy and computer generated words were added.  The bright stars are dots of a white/clear Gelly Roll pen.

I think the card looks pretty cool!  
I love it when you have an idea and it all comes together!

Come and have a look at what the Sisters have created this week 
Happy Crafting!




  1. This is great, Helen! Thanks for being our Queen, Jo x

  2. Absolutely brilliant, it really does look as if the Tardis has smashed through the paper. Thanks for being a wonderful queen

  3. Thanks for joining the challenge at Take a Word. The Tardis time machine is perfect for the "time" challenge. Great stamping.

  4. This is definitely all kinds of awesome. I love the combination of the torn paper stamp with the TARDIS. (Also, thank you - I think - for letting me know there's another Doctor Who set out there. Although the doctor is a little too 11ish for me, perhaps.) As you can tell, you inspired us to go on a mini Doctor Who theme, hope you don't mind! :D A terrific Queen contribution!

  5. You are out of this world. Huge Dr. Who fan. Thanks for joining the team this week.

  6. This is fantastic! I know several people that this would be perfect for. Love that you added the tardis on a "wobbly thing" - I was looking for them on eBay the other day, I should have put that in the search box! LOL x
