Hello friends! We are halfway through the July Release Countdown from My Favorite Things! I have a fun space-themed set to share with you today called Best Friends in the Universe.
I stamped all of my images with some Copic friendly black ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock, colored them with Copic Markers, and then cut the out with their coordinating die-namics.
Copic Colors Used:
- Skin: E0000, E000, E11, E04
- Purples: V000, V01, V15, V17
- Oranges: YR00, YR04, YR07, YR18
- Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y15, V12
- Whites/Grays: 0, C00, C0, C2, C4
- Teals: BG10, BG11, BG13, BG49
For my background, I used the outer stencil from the Rectangle Extraordinaire Stencil Set (one of my absolute favorites!) and blended the inside rectangle with Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet, and Ripe Persimmon Distress Oxide Inks. I also added some Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink to the edges for darker border. I splattered this piece with water and then blotted it dry with a paper towel. Next, I splattered this piece again with diluted Opaque White Paint to resemble stars in the night sky.
Next, I trimmed this panel using one of the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics Set 1 and then adhered it to a top folding A2 (4.25″ x 5.5″) Card Base. I stamped my sentiment onto the bottom portion of my card with black ink and lastly attached my images with foam tape for added dimension.
