Hello Crafty Friends! I joined in for Craft Roulette again on Friday and was very excited about this weeks four parameters.
1. 4.25 Square Card
2. Craft Roulette Colors
4. Bottom Border
So my first idea was to create a night scene with two little critters on a hill watching the stars. I made it, but it just didn't pop for me. It was cute, but it just wasn't what I wanted. So as I was walking back to my office from making a coffee, I had a brain fart! I think it was a pretty good brain fart, lol!
I thought, why make just one 4.25 sized square, when I could make three and add them together to make a folded card. I decided to go with a space theme as well.
One of my favorite things to do with alcohol ink is create space backgrounds!! They just come out so amazing! Add some color, add some silver, add some black, blow it around and let it dry. Then I added splatters of white using Copic Opaque white paint to create the stars in the sky. I set these aside to dry.
Using Neenah Classic Crest Smooth White Cardstock, I stamped my images from MFT - Space Explorer with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink. I colored the images in with Copic markers. I tried to make sure the colors were bright like the Craft Roulette color wheel.
I die cut the images out using the corresponding dies and then added glossy accents to the astronauts helmet covers to look shiny. I also added some to the front of the astronauts suits. Once dry, I used a size 10 white Gelly Pen to create shine lines.I cut a piece of light grey cardstock to 4.25. I used Karen Burniston's moon die that comes with the Rocket Pop-Up to trace the moon and craters onto the grey cardstock. I then continued the same pattern on two other pieces of grey cardstock so that when put together, they look complete. Then I added detail using Copic markers.
