Reach for the stars (CDD May Release Day 4)

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Craftin Desert Divas Day 4 of our May Release Showcase!

The last few days we highlighted our new products by sharing the fabulous Design Team's projects for each stamp set! Today is the last day and the products will be in the shop tomorrow. We have 6 new stamp sets, 1 new die & 3 new sequin mixes.

Today we are showcasing the Adventure Awaits and Adventure Land stamp sets. I used both sets to create a galaxy theme but the sets are so versatile. You can create so many different scenes with them. I started off blending different Distress inks on watercolor cardstock, trying to overlap them and making them darker with a a dark blue and black ink. 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 (http://craftindesertdivas.com/fancy-frame-dies/).

I used the astronaut from the Adventure Awaits set as well as the little UFO from the Adventure Land set, stamped them on watercolor cardstock and colored them in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.

The sentiment is from the soon to be released This & That sentiment set. The whole sentiment is "Reach for the stars even if you have to stand on a cactus" but I only needed the first part of the sentiment. I stamped it on white card stock with black ink and die cut it with one of the soon to be released Flag Banner dies.

To assemble my card I adhered the galaxy panel to a top-folded white notecard. I adhered the astronaut with 3D foam squares and the UFO actually wobbles. I used some wire and wound it around a pencil to create a spring and adhered it both to the UFO and the background. Last but not least I also adhered the sentiment to the top part of the card.

Here are the other products I've used to create this card:
