Blast Off!!

Welcome

I background for this card came about when I was playing with melted wax crayons - it looked like a night sky to me, so I splattered it with some white acrylic paint, and some silver paint.


I added the wee boy's age with a silver die cut


The rocket was a freebie image, compliments of Mr G**gle, and coloured using watercolour pencils. After colouring I trimmed it out and glued it to the background.
This panel was then mounted over silver paper, then onto the dark blue card base.


I decorated the inside with a strip I had trimmed from the background, and stamped the sentiment there in blue ink, and coloured it with a silver pen

It does look like a night sky Maxine, so intense and moody and perfect for the image you used.

Excellent. I like the background and the rocket was a good find. How do you attach it if the background is made with crayons? Nice finiahing touches. Kate x

Another great card - love the image from Mr G. But what interested me most was the background. I would never have thought of using melted crayon like that but how effective is it!!
An absolutely super card.
Neet xx Blessings to you
