blast off......


Today I'm going to show a card...  and I enter the card for the Wee Memories Challenge #64 - Sponsored by Graphic 45!

It's about masculinity... so after a few days figuring out how to make the card,
here I am with my masculine card....

I used Cherished Stamp for the map, embossed it with the embossing powder and colored with distress inks

Used some Carla Craft punches to make the spaceships & stars

... and while I was thinking to make a planet and what kind of planet I was going to make.... here came my daughter...
She suggested me to make a planet mars... it's a red planet and has a lot of craters on it, she added.

To make the planet mars, I colored the half circle paper with distress inks.... 
and after sitting for a while, thinking how to make the craters, I came with the idea to crumple tiny bits of papers and colored them with distress inks ( fired brick & black soot )... and glued them

Applied some glossy accents on the spaceships (the yellow dots) to bring out the window accents

Don't you like the red planet?
.... my daughter loves it very much ...
Thank you Sacca.....
