With the recent launch into space I thought this was an appropriate time to release the aliens. This silly Alien is zipping around space wishing you a blast on your special day. Paired up with a fun space background and the Connected Oval Frame, I thought it was a perfect combination.
Creating the Card
In order to create the background I have found that using glossy paper and an airbrush machine with your Copic is the best success. I suppose you could use glossy paper and apply the ink straight from the refill but the results will be different. Once the paper is covered I spritzed with rubbing alcohol to make the texture.
The background was cut using the Connected Oval Frame and then I die cut a second piece in white and inlaid it into the sky. Once that was complete and adhered to the card base I colored and cut out the space dude, rocket and planet.
In order to give it some dimension I popped up the alien and sentiment using foam tape.
I love all the funny little characters in this clear stamp set and know you will too. All the links are below.
