Rocket Man


I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a while. First it was Thanksgiving, then it was the stress of my husband changing jobs, then it was the impossible task of hosting two birthday parties back to back in my home for our daughter's 4th birthday! What was I thinking? Well, there is still plenty of stress to go around, but I'm digging my way out. I'm going to try to post some of the cards that I have managed to make on here from the past few weeks! Thanks for your patience!


The "Rocket Man" card is actually for my nephew's 6th birthday. That is getting into a difficult card making age. Everything I have seems so cutesy and geared for boys, but I think this one came out pretty well. I used the SU set All Mixed Up, and the color combination is Blue Bayou, Riding Hood Red, and Summer Sun. In addition I used SU ribbon and the SU star punch. The background is from a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used both Faber Castell pencils with gamsol and copic markers to color in the image. To finish it off, I used Crystal Effects on the helmet to give the illusion of a glass astronaut's helmet. Thanks for taking the time to stop by today!
