Cardmaking

Fly me to the moon!

Hi everyone, can’t believe it’s been 10 days since I last posted, I’m sure time is speeding up at the moment…. maybe I’m just getting old!  Anyway I’m back with another card for a challenge.  This time it’s the Male Room Challenge blog.( https://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2018/06/challenge-87-little-boys-dt-call.html )

The theme for challenge 87 is “little boys” and I went with a space theme using die cuts and a pixie powder night sky for this easel card.

I bought my first pixie powders earlier this year and I’ve loved playing with them and seeing the different effects.  This was the first time I tried them on dark card and I was really pleased with the night sky I created.

Pixie powders in Midnight blue, silver dream and aubergine dream.

I scattered some of the three colours onto navy card stock and then sprayed with water, and used a paint brush to add water to any larger clumps of powder to make sure they had all reacted.

After I’ve sprayed water over the pixie powders on the dark paper, the real sheen comes once it’s dried.

I then added a dovecraft die cut rocket and some tiny silver stars and stamped a happy birthday sentiment.

To keep the card sitting up I raised the circle panel on the card base with some sticky pads and added an age for the birthday boy.

I hope you like my card and I’d love it if you left me a comment!

  1. Fab card and all the little boys I’ve ever known have loved anything to do with space. Thanks for playing at The Male Room and good luck with the DT call.
