Drunken Stampers Go Out of This World

This week at Drunken Stampers, we are going on a long journey.  We are going to outer space! 
Your Drunken mission, if you choose to accept it:


 Create a project with Neil Armstrong!  Use outer space or an astronaut.  
I don't have any Neil Armstrong crafty supplies, but I do have this one space stamp set.


I created the background using purple, green and silver gelatos on black paper. I colored the paper with the gelato sticks and then took a wet paintbrush to blend the colors and let the black show through.  Using a speckled stamp, I used silver embossing powder to make the background look like it had stars or space dust.

The images were stamped separately on white card stock.  I used Distress markers, acrylic paint, and gel pens on the images.



I created the inside of the card on the computer, then stamped for extra fun.  I will be using this card for my nephew.  I hope he likes astronauts!



I included this photo so my background could be seen better.

You have until next Saturday to complete your mission!
