Hello. I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with a card that’s a little more masculine. I needed a spaced themed card with a birthday greeting and I’ve never done a galaxy background with my alcohol markers before so I thought it was time to give it a try!
I started out by stamping the spaceman and a bunch of the planets from the Lawn Fawn Out of this World set in some alcohol marker friendly MFT Extreme Black Ink onto some blending cardstock. I coloured these in with my alcohol markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
The foreground spaceship wall scene was easy – just scribble some cool grey markers over and over until a smooth blend is achieved. The galaxy background was a little more work – starting with some deep, dark blues and violets, followed by a light pink and blue-green. A little white, gold and silver gel pen finished off that starry look.
I cut the silver panel with an MFT Inside & Out Stitched Circle die, using two more of the circle dies to create a frame from some bluejay cardstock. I adhered some acetate to the back of the grey panel and popped it up over the galaxy background with some foam tape to make it seem like a porthole looking out into space.
I stamped the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Out of this World set onto some cream cardstock and adhered it towards the bottom of the main panel.
