You're Out of This World

It's a scorcher here is Hampshire today and while I love the sunshine, I hate the heat with a passion, so I kind of of wish I was in another world today ( or at least a cooler one!), Which leads me neatly into the theme for today's card I am sharing. 

I've been in a bit of a creative slump recently, and today I was itching to get crafting, and for a while it just wasn't happening ( don't you just hate it when that happens!). Then I remembered a background I made a while ago when idly playing and had an idea. I dug out my trusty box of stamps from Visible Image ( always guaranteed to inspire so check them out yourself on the link) and this card came to life. I just love these stamps , which I believe are sadly retired now. They are perfect for boys cards and artwork. 

The background was created with brushos, glossy accents, gilding wax and splatters of acrylic paint. It just screamed outer space to me when I created it. I love brushos as you never quite know what you're going to end up with, which makes the creative process so much fun!


Have a great weekend
