You're My Universe {Paper Smooches}

Hello there!  Today, I have a card to share with you for the Paper Smooches June Challenge!  The theme this month is Men.

Even though I have a husband and am a mom to two amazing boys, masculine cards are always hard for me.  I am not sure why that is... but when I saw the theme for this month's challenge, I knew I had to play along because I don't have nearly enough boy cards on hand.

I pulled out one of my favorite Paper Smooches stamp sets, Space Cadet.  I started off by ink blending a background using Peacock Feathers, Lucky Clover, Mermaid Lagoon, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord distress inks.  I splattered on some clean clear water to bleach out some areas, then added white spatters with watered down acrylic paint.  I stamped and colored images from the Space Cadet stamp set, then diecut them with the coordinating dies.  To create the moon, I diecut a circle from white cardstock, then used a stencil from the Papertrey Ink Out of This World mini kit to add the fun pattern with Pumice Stone distress ink.  I adhered the moon down with a glue pen, and popped everything else with foam tape.  I used the Space dies to diecut some white stars for the sky, then stamped a sentiment from the Space Cadet stamp set on a strip of white cardstock.  To finish things off, I added some white gel pen accents, and popped the panel up on a white card base with foam tape.

You're My Universe

That's all for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
