To boldly go....

.. well, my little flying saucer isn't exactly the Starship Enterprise, but never mind, I had fun making the card.

For the background, I used brushos in ultramarine and turquoise. Once the background was dry, I stamped all over with a very old dotty background stamp from Anitas (it is dated 1999 so practically an antique!) using silver ink and heat embossed with silver powder.

The die cut planets and flying saucer are cut with silver and red mirri, using a set of dies which I think came from Dies R Us. The finishing touch of the star sentiment uses a Debbi Moore stamp which I've had for about 3 years, it came in a goody bag at a show and I think is a discontinued one.

I am sharing this with

C.R.A.F.T. - Out of this world
The Crafters Café - use die cuts or punches
Retro Rubber - Hit the road Jack
The Male Room - anything goes/technology

  3. Oh this is gorgeous! I spent a bit of time when I was doing my DT card wishing I could have done a card featuring a molecular transporter or the Enterprise, so I'm on your wavelength here! The brusho background is really interesting and I think this is a product I might need to investigate. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber for our transportation challenge.
