Spaced Out!

Greetings Earthlings!  (Sorry couldn’t resist!)

This month ITdbK Creative Playground challenge theme is a sketch. I decided to use a space set for this one.



Materials used: 
Imagine That! digis by Kris – To the Moon and Back
pictures from the Hubble space telescope to make background papers
X-Press It card
Copic pens
printer card
black, blue and gold mirri card
white A5 card blank
scalloped rectangle die

The spaceship and alien have been coloured with Copics and fussy cut.

The background paper and the mat for the spaceship are made from photographs taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. I have cut a slot in the scalloped mat to try to make the spaceship look as it it is going through the midle of the rings.

The words are a quote that any Toy Story fan would recognise!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    So darling & cute! This is a motif (and images) I would have absolutely no clue as to how to use…but you’ve done it perfectly. (and I liked your header – very appropriate with the card’s theme). Brilliant colors, and with the fussy cutting, layers, so dimensional as well. This one should go to a very special young boy who might be fascinated with space. TFS
