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.
