Astronaut in the Backyard

Howdy y'all!

I'm back! I am  Mary Ellen Driggs and my blog is Creative Time With M.E.

I had such fun last month being a guest designer for the Clever Dexter that they let me come back!

This month's challenge Sponsor is Polkadoodles!

And the challenge for this month is All that Sparkles!

As guest designer I was able to play with the Astronaut - Little Dudes from Polkadoodles!  With this stamp set you get this adorable little dude. Plus 3 fab themed printable papers and themed sentiments!

I chose to do a slimline card for this image! This allowed me to have plenty of space to create the card I was envisioning. I knew that the astronaut needed to have a galaxy setting behind him. But I also knew he needed to be grounded a bit since he's standing in the grass. So to help with that look I created the fence. 

The fence was created using an Amazon makeup brush and a retired punch. Along with Distress Ink in Brushed Corduroy and Distressed Oxide in Vintage Photo. Also, I used my T-square ruler and a Sharpie. The grass was created with a homemade stencil. As for the astronaut, he's colored with a mixture of colored pencils and alcohol markers. Finally, I created the galaxy using a mixture of Dylusions sprays and some white paint. 

Y'all still have time if you wish to participate in the Clever Dexter Challenge!!!

The challenge runs from July 1st to July 31st!
