Hi, everyone, it’s time for another Crazy 4 Challenges! Being as it’s the third week of the month, it’s sketch week. Peggy is our hostess and she has a fun sketch for us.
I started with a Cement Gray card stock base. To that I added a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock on which I created a starry sky using Starry Night Background Builder using emboss resists technique. I stamped the stars with Versamark, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder and sponged on the sky using Blue Breeze dye ink, Cornflower dye ink, Blueberry dye ink, and Nightshift Blue dye ink. To add more depth, I splattered on some watered down white paint and clear water. I popped the sky up on foam mounting tape and added a strip of Wild Cherry card stock embossed with Basic Stitch Lines Die-namics for the diagonal element.
Next, from Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper I cut the rocket ship from Out of This World Die-namics, stamped it with the coordinating image from Out of This World stamp set using Black Licorice hybrid ink, colored it with Copic markers, and popped it up on foam. I added rocket flames using Roughing It Die-namics and Orange Zest card stock and Pineapple card stock. I stamped the sentiment across the bottom with Black Licorice hybrid ink and finished off with some enamel dots.
And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
