Today, We are headed into outer space with Beam Me Up!
I started off by doing just that - masking off a section of my white card base with that purple tape, and then I took vibrant colors of Distress Inks ( all colors listed/linked below) and took a finger dauber, and messily added the colors in circle groups within my masked area. Once I had the color down, I added chipped sapphire and black soot to create the darkness of my galaxy. Next, I spritzed on some water, and let it create some faded stars to the look, and I dabbed it up with my microfiber cloth. Then, I moved on to adding my white paint splatters for the more visible stars. This is so much fun to do, and I must say VERY addicting!! It really brings to life a galaxy background!
Next, I created my "ground" or "planet" with more Distress inks, and made it look very distressed. Once I was happy with this look, I set both aside to completely dry - because after all this was all done on just white card stock! I then moved on to stamping my images I wanted to use from Beam Me Up. I colored them in with my Copic Markers, and once complete, I die cut them out with the matching dies.
I added my party hat to the smallest alien, and then added him to his spaceship. Once my card base was dry, I removed my masks, and revealed nice crisp edges! So satisfying!! I also cut down to size my planet to fit with my masked scene. I added my other alien image and the present with liquid glue. And, for the spaceship, the fun element - an action wobbler!! To see this in action - you can watch the video tutorial!!
And the final step, was to add my sentiment on the inside that reads Have An Out Of This World Birthday!
