Far Out, Man!!

Here it is, nearly Halloween and I have a totally NOT
Halloween themed project for you today.
Since I went back to work after being a housewife for the last
8 years, I have been really slacking on creativity and my mojo
has gone into hiding. I'm so worn out at the end of the day that
I'm usually in bed by 9 PM. I used to stay up all hours of the night
making fantastical things...
I digress.

This tag is for the current theme at Stampotique Designer's Challenge,
"Outer Space".

I kind of struggled with this theme, as I'm not a really
space-y type of chick. BUT, I did want to try my hand
at a galaxy background. 

I created the background using various spray inks like
Tim Holtz and Lindy's. I used the TH distress spray
in black soot to give the tag a base, and then added dark colors
of Lindy's sprays, drying between layers. I topped the darkness
with metallics and some white speckling to represent the stars.

I used Gonno #6203 as my space man. He looks like he's a bit
off balance to begin with, so this wasn't much of a stretch.

I used the Circles Cube #6184 and stamped the one with the
largest open area. It fit Gonno's face and a clear epoxy
sticker perfectly! And now our spaceman has a helmet.

   Lastly, I added some TH stars and some TH alphabet die cuts
to spell out "Space Case". I added some Stickles for sparkle and
more starry illusion. Fini!

Thanks for dropping by.

Be sure to pop by the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog
