It seems like ages since I last posted on my blog, but it was only seven days ago! This week’s sketch (WSC498), at the MFT Blog, made me think of a moon in space. Of course, I had to add a space shuttle, die cut with the Blast Off Die-namics, to complete the scene.
I started by die cutting a circle with the fifth largest die from the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics out of masking paper and adhered the rest of the mask to my 4 1/8″ x 5 5/8″ panel, so that I could ink the moon. For that, I used Antique Linen, Weathered Wood and Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
Die cutting and assembling the space shuttle, was a blast! I used the following colors of MFT card stock for it; Smooth White, Steel Grey, Red Hot, Tangy Orange, Orange Zest and Pineapple. To give the illusion of metal, I inked the grey parts with silver pigment ink. I drew the reflection in the window with Copic markers and a white gel pen. The same one that I used to draw the stars.
