Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 13 – Out of This World Birthday Card

Week 13 of Techno Stamper’s Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge was a lot of fun to do-andSketch_13_3  believe it or not, I resisted the urge to do my usual distressing with brown ink!

I used my brand new stamp set from Lizzie Anne Designs "Out of This World."  I just love it! When I ordered it, I just knew it would go well with my Cosmo Cricket "Cogsmo" paper!  Fun prints and colors!


I stamped the astronaut image on white card stock, and then masked him and stamped the planet "ground" and rocket "behind" him.  I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils, and rather than using Gamsol to blend, used the Prismacolor blending pencil instead.  To add a little "space sparkle" or "stardust" to the images, I outlined and colored in some of the areas with clear  and silver Spica pens.  Love using those!

To finish everything off, I using some Inkssentials Glossy Accents for the rocket ship windows, and the face mask of the space helmut.  Just the right touch!103_0602

I used Stampin’ Up! small and large star punches for the accents, and used dimensional tape to mount them to the card front.

Fun sketch, Mary Jo!  Thanks for letting me play along!
