Out of this World

When I asked my son what he'd like on his birthday card, he said "a spaceship". (Well actually it sounded more like "a paceship" - he just turned three.) Since I just so happened to have a spaceship stamp, I made him another birthday card. He loved them both and this one actually came together easier than the farm card - lol! I used white pigment ink on a sponge dauber to give the star field area beneath the flying saucer a cloudy look. The saucer and globe were both stamped twice - once on the blue card and once on white which I then colored, cut out, and adhered to the blue card. The stars are the A Muse "lots of flowers bl" stamp in white pigment ink and glitter. Inside sentiment says "You're Out of This World!" which is the sentiment that is paired with the flying saucer in the A Muse Purrr-fect clear set.
Images by A Muse; SU Brocade Blue cardstock; white cardstock; Palette Hybrid ink Noir; Colobox cateye white pigment ink; Prismacolor markers; Stickles in red, purple and green; Art Glitter and Sakura Quickie glue pen.

This is out of this world! Thanks for the idea to stamp the objects twice, once on the dark and once on the lite card stock. I don't know why I didn't ever think of that. Quite an 'A-Ha!' moment.

Just beautiful! I understand why you would stamp the objects on a white card and then glue down, but why do you also stamp them on the dark card?

Thank-you! Rachel, I stamped the images on the blue card so I didn't have to cut out the rings around the globe and also the feet on the flying saucer. :-)
