Out of This World

Wellllllll I thought I had the video for today's card, but apparently my phone ate it. Sorry about that!

I'm back from my #notvacation and ready to get crafty again! I'm starting with this adorable and sweet space image. You know how I feel about space images! 

I colored this on a live with my class group. First, I stamped the image on Wheat cardstock, and then quickly filled in the sky with a Copic Marker. One of the things about coloring with colored pencil is that it tends to be more time-consuming than other mediums, so I shortcut with Copic often!

I was going to blend it all to remove streaks, but while I was coloring - I thought the streaks there from the first layer of marker looked atmospheric, so I liked it and left it - remember - perfection is for Serial killers!

The smaller stars in the image I colored over so some were dark, some light. Then I colored the rest of the image with Luminance pencils, starting as I always do with a layer of white under all the colors for that glowy look. I threw colored shadows on the surface of the moon as well. So easy and quick to color with I think 5 pencils? What adorable images.

  1. This is just all kinds Of awesome wonderfulness!

  2. I love this shade of blue for an evening sky. Most evening skies seem to have black in them. But, I've always used a lush dark blue. Inspiring.
    Stay well and healthy
