The Challenge 91

Welcome back to another sketch from The Challenge!

As you already know, I'm not a big layers person, but this sketch is actually something that fits nicely into my normal style. Pretty exciting!

I created a space Father's Day card recently and absolutely loved it, so I adapted my original design to fit the sketch and created this cute birthday card.

I started by stamping all of my images and coloring them with my Copics. I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut them out because I don't have the dies for this particular set. I set them aside and then got to work on my galaxy background.

I used 4 different types of distress ink and my blending tools to create the background and then splattered water droplets over it to create the starry look.

I cut a panel from some Plum cardstock for the mat and then a piece of solar white cardstock to be placed on top of it. I cut the tiny banners from some pieces of scrap blue cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on the white piece with my MISTI to ensure that it was straight. Now all that was left was to assemble it.

I spent a little time rearranging my images until I got them where I wanted them and then I started adhering them down. I used foam tape behind each of the planets and the sentiment block. I adhered my little space explorer directly to the sentiment piece. That's all there was to it!

Thanks for stopping by today! I can't wait to see how you're inspired by our sketch this week!
