Hello! It’s time for the latest Wednesday Sketch Challenge from MFT Stamps! I went with something a bit out of my comfort zone today for my interpretation of the sketch.
After looking at the sketch, (for quite awhile actually, lol), I knew that I wanted to have this cute Birdie Brown astronaut floating over the crest of the moon. What I wasn’t sure of was whether or not I could sketch a moon that actually looked like a moon. I basically used a ruler to lightly draw a straight line at an angle and then used my Copic Sketch Markers (0, C00, C0, C1, C3, C4, C5) to do the rest. Obviously, it’s just an interpretation of the moon but hopefully it gets the point across!
For my background sky, I blended some Distress Inks (Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot) onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I spritzed this panel lightly with water, blotted it with a paper towel and then splattered some Opaque White Paint over the top to resemble stars. I used a white gel pen to add a few extra details.
I used one of the astronauts from the Birdie Brown Space Explorer Stamp Set for my image. I stamped him with Copic friendly Black Ink, colored with Copics and then used the coordinating die to cut him out. For my sentiment, I simply stamped it at an angle onto the surface of the moon with Black Ink.
