Anybody there??? 😂 Just kidding. I am really bad at blogging though, aren't I? I'm thinking I should try harder to make the time to share my cards more often. 😋 It's not that I don't make them, its just that I am not so good with sharing them. Well, that and the fact that 'last minute Lucy' over here, seems to always be making cards 5 minutes before I need them and end up either not taking photos or simply forgetting to come back and share them.
Anyway.... its still early into 2018 and therefore IMHO still ok to make positive changes, right? 😉
So lets move along, shall we?
Today I have a card to share that I made for a birthday party my youngest son was invited to this weekend. I used the Space Explorer set from MFT for this one and it was SOOO much fun to make.
I started this card with an idea for the background that I wanted my space dude to be floating on. The earth was a free with 60 die I got a while ago with one of my MFT orders. It is one of my favourite dies. It was attached to a sentiment that read "you mean the world to me" but thanks to my old jewelry making days I had the tools on hand to cut that part off so that I could just use the earth as a stand alone die. I have had a lot of use of this die this way. The die only cuts out the continents, so once those were cut out, I used a circle stax die that fitted to make a mask. I masked off the background and went to work inking up the blue earth using distress inks. Once I was happy with the earth, I masked it off and got inky with my space background. I used a white gel pen and some studio calico white and shimmer sprays to create the stars. The images (including the continents) were coloured with Copic markers. I used some glossy accents to add some interest and dimension to the moon, the ring around Saturn and the continents on the earth. Once everything was inked and coloured, I mounted it onto a silver glitter card stock. That, was then mounted onto a white card base on which I used a stitched die from lil inkers to create a stitching line detail. You can't see it in this photo (and I can't seem to upload the video I took 😡) but the space guy is attached with an action wobbler, so he jiggles! EEKKK! 7 year olds get all the fun cards I tell ya!
Anyhoo... thats my card for today. I hope you like it. And come back tomorrow to see all the fun I have been having with some Altenew flowers.
Thanks for visiting me.
