Lawn Fawn Out of the World and Beam me Up card set with Galaxy backgrounds
In preparation for my recent art show, I worked with these galaxy backgrounds and my Lawn Fawn space stamp and die sets. I kind of went wild, coloring planet and little characters.
I sponged the brighter oxide inks first, then I layered black soot on top. I splattered pearly spray ink on the very top for a super galaxy look. I went back and added more splatters again and again until I achieved my desired results. I watched several you tube videos and created all the backgrounds in one day.
While the backgrounds dried (spray ink), I stamped and embossed dozens of images of planets, aliens, astronauts, and space vehicles.
I spent a lot of time coloring the images with alcohol ink pens. I did use some metallic inks on special places. I combined all my images on top of the backgrounds to come up with complimentary designs. Finally I stamped and die cut sentiments for each card.
In addition I would like to note at my recent art show this is the only other design besides the coffee cup gift card holder of which I sold out. I guess they were a hit! So time consuming, maybe I should have sold them for more. I believe the same lady bought them for all her grandchildren.
