Hello and happy Tuesday! We have an Out of this World
challenge for you this week at Tuesday Throwdown
and the design team did an amazing job with their inspiration. Click HERE
for all the challenge details and design team inspiration. Our sponsor this week is MyGrafico
and they provided the Space Art Digital Stamps
for the design team to create our examples. I seem to be the oddball this week, but that's really "normal" for me. I used the alien, moon and shooting star to create this Reach for the Stars Card
. We would love to see your Out of this World
creations! You have until mid-day on Monday August 7th to add your link.
This was my first attempt at a space background! I started with a piece of mixed media paper and sponged on distress oxide inks in Broken China and Salty Ocean. Then I mixed in some Lucky Clover but I wanted the background darker and those are my only oxide inks. So... I used distress inks in Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves. Then I used a water bottle and sprayed the paper. To speed the drying process I used a heat gun and repeated until I was happy with the results. The stars and sentiment are from the new Cosmic Newton stamp set
by Newton's Nook and they were heat embossed with white embossing powder. The background was then matted to a piece of Navy cardstock. The images were colored with Copic markers. For the moon I printed it on Sahara Sand cardstock by Stampin' Up!
and then used a splatter stamp from the retired Gorgeous Grunge stamp set by Stampin' Up!
using Sahara Sand ink. All the images are fussy cut, so don't look too close this is not my best skill. Some glossy accents were added to the alien's eyes and that's it! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will play along in our Out of this World
