Splitcoaststampers is having a Love Fest series of challenges featuring their member companies, so I decided to join in to get myself stamping. I need to build up my stash of cards. This particular card is for the challenge sponsored by The Cat's Pajamas. They provided an inspiration photo which can be seen here.
I started by stamping the small star grouping using silver ink on Smokey Shadow cardstock, adhering it to a Soft Stone card base. It has a slight shimmer in person. I punched a circle from Lemon Tart cardstock and then embossed it with the Polka Dots folder. (reversed to look like craters) The sentiment is stamped on a Soft Stone fishtail flag.
For the rocket, I stamped it in Tuxedo Black ink and added shading with my Copic markers. I paper-pieced the fins and jets with silver paper and the circles with Smokey Shadow. I used Glossy Accents to make the top of the rocket look like a window. It adds some shine and dimension. This card was very fun to make!
