Floating Image Space Scene Card

Hello! I created this card for the Lawnfawnatics Blog Create A Scene Challenge. I also got inspired by the recent NASA launch last May. 

I created the galaxy background using Karin markers on Canson watercolor paper which you can appreciate more in the close-up photo below. I would like to thank Gladiis Moreno for the short video she shared on how to use Karin markers to create a galaxy background. I added splatters of gold paint from Finetec/Coliro Artist Mica Watercolor Paint set. I set this aside to dry.

Using the same watercolor paper and markers, I stamped the images from Lawn Fawn Out Of This World stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I dried the images with a heat gun before coloring it. I colored the astronaut's suit based on the SpaceX suit. I used a color pencil to create the U.S.A. flag on the suit. I fussy cut the images leaving a thin white border around it. I adhered a transparent tape on the back of the astronaut with a piece of tape. 

I die cut the frames from LF #Awesome. I stacked 3 layers of this frame. I adhered a skinny double sided tape to two corners of the frame. I loosely adhered the tips of the thread to these tape. I covered these thread with the same skinny double sided tape. 

I adhered the planets to the galaxy background. I rotated the frame to make it into a diamond shaped frame and give it a new look. I adhered this watercolored panel to the bottom of the stacked frame, and cut off the excess. For the top frame, I embossed this with Wow! Pearl Gold embossing powder using the Wow! Mixed Media Embossing brush to apply the embossing ink to the frame.

For the background panel, I was die cutting the LF Fancy Lattice Backdrop to the Paper Source Peacock cardstock but the negative cuts did not fell off so I decided to keep them attached to the the backdrop for an embossed/in-laid look. I applied a wide piece of tape on the back to keep all of the pieces intact.

After I treated the panel with an anti-static pouch, I painted the diamond pieces with the Wow! Mixed Media embossing brush. This works like a manicure for the nails. I think I overdid the paint on some areas but for the most part, I like this product. I poured the same pearl gold embossing powder to the area, then heat set it.

For the sentiment, I die cut a banner strip from the LF Flippin' Awesome die on the same colored cardstock. I had to partially die cut this banner so I can extend its length to accommodate the sentiment. The sentiment is from LF Lucky Stars stamp set. This was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. 

I adhered the scene to the top of the panel and adhered the sentiment strip with foam adhesive to the bottom of the panel. I applied Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen to the planets.

I have a short video included here so you can see how the astronaut floats around the space.

Thank you for visiting my blog. My son, Ryan, did his space scene version using most of the products I used while these items are out on my table. Please check it out on my next blog post. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
