Space slimline card for WSC544

Hi there! We’ve got another Wednesday Sketch Challenge (WSC544) at the MFT Blog for you today. This time I created a space slimline card with one of the adorable astronauts from the BB Space Explorer stamp set.

I followed the sketch quite closely… substituting one of the circles with the astronaut’s head and another smaller circle with an enamel star. I also lowered the Translucent Vellum sentiment banner so that it wouldn’t cover the main character.

First, I die cut a 2 1/2″ mask with one of the dies from the A2 Circle STAX Die-namics and adhered it to a piece of Smooth White Card Stock. Next, I used the following Premium Dye Inks to do some ink blending: Caribbean Sea, Cornflower and Grape Jelly. After that, I spritzed the panel with purple and green Mica spray.

Once the background was dry, I used the rectangular die from the Slimline Starter Die-namics set, to do some partial die cutting and create my 3 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ (8,2cm x 18,9cm) panel.

To create the orange planet (March?) I used the Wave Maker Stencil and the following Premium Dye Inks: Moroccan Spice, Fire Coral, Candied Yam and Orange Zest. For the blue planet I went with the Perfect Pool Water Stencil, as well as the Caribbean Sea and Sno Cone Premium Dye Inks. I adhered them to the panel with Scotch foam tape.

To add some detail to the moon, I used Sno Cone and Cement Gray Premium Dye Inks and a small ink blending brush.
