For this Linky Party I wanted to create a fun slider card using the Adventure Awaits and Adventure Land stamp sets! I had so much fun creating a galaxy Sneak Peek project for the new release that I wanted to make another one!
Iused the astronaut from the Adventure Awaits set as well as the rocket and planet from the Adventure Land set, stamped them on watercolor cardstock and colored them in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.
For the background, I started off applying Fossilized Amber, Pink Raspberry, Tilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot to mix media cardstock. Then, I spritzed it with water. Since the ink reacts with water it will be lifted off when dabbing the water away. This was the first layer of stars. I also used white acrylic paint, Perfect Pearls "Pearl" and Gansai Tambi #95 and spritzed it on the panel with a brush. After everything was dry, I die cut it with the largest scallop frame from the Fancy Frame die set.
To create the slider part of the card, I used an x-acto knife and cut out a strip from the center of the background. The strip had to be a bit smaller than the 1 cent piece I was going to use. To create the needed dimension, I used a few layers of foam tape all around the cut out strip and the rest of the panel. The cent piece needs a little bit of room to move around easily.
I adhered down the cut out strip to a white notecard and also adhered the background panel, making sure to include the cent piece behind it. On top of the cent piece, I glued a small 3D foam square to which I was able to adhere the little astronaut.
I found the perfect sentiment in the "Wishful thoughts" stamp set: "Wishing you were here with me". I stamped it with VersaMark ink on black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I cut the cardstock down to a strip and die cut it with the fancy frame die so the borders would match with the background panel. To finish the scene, I adhered the rocket and the planet to the card.
