Planets and Galaxies

Happy Sunday folks! Wooee I've been busy. It's rained the past two days and its cold so I've been hanging in the craft room. Wanna see what I have to share this morning? Just checked and it's now afternoon but I swear it still feels like morning...why can't I have a few more hours to the day? Ok, my Bella shipment arrived and I ordered the October Afternoon Rocket Age 8x8 design paper. I thought it would pair perfectly with the Planets and Galaxies stamp. Of course Paula beat me to the post though - she stopped into Bellaland and brought her stuff home. Mine was a little delayed waiting for all the new release rubbah to get in.

I love playing on Sunday because I'm pretty sure that I can find something to color using Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and today was no exception. You can see the sketch here if you want to play too.

I think this came together pretty nicely. Of course I started with Bella's Bestest paper and Memento Tuxedo black ink. Then I colored with copics. Highlighting was done with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. This is heading to my nephew so I didn't bother with machine stitching...he's more interested in what's inside anyway. I followed the sketch for the most part but added my usual "belated" birthday sentiment panel. Dag nabbit I tried to get this done on time but the UPS man took to long to get my stuff here. Honest, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Finished card is 4x8. Tools used were a corner punch, EK Success border punch, Nesties circle and star dies.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day. Thanks for stopping by.
