Saturday I went to the Carson Rubber Stamp show and entered the ATC contest for the first time. I was having a hard time deciding which card I wanted to enter but I ultimately went for my spaceman.
I embossed the image with white embossing powder. I then colored the rocket using silver silks and used gold and bronze silks for the flames. I splattered with silver and gold as well. I then used my press punch to make some random sized holes around and used Whip Cream ink for the chalkboard technique to give the effect of galaxies. Next I layered my Denim Days card piece on to our new shimmery black cardstock to add some depth to the holes. Finally I punched one last hole through both layers so one of them would allow you to see the blue layered card behind that one. Once it was all together I added some Journey Glaze to the face shield of the astronaut and the rocket ship and a few random spots around the background. I really had a fun time making this card. I hope you enjoy it also. I didn't win but it was fun to enter. I will definitely try again next show.
