Deep Space Dreams + Giveaway

As you saw Saturday, I'm psyched about space themed cards. So now I get to show you the new Hero Arts space themed kit. It's funny to me that we ALL want to go to space - an inhospitable place you would instantly die! But we all want it. The curiosity is just too much! I really think the most memorable shows and movies are the ones with space themes: Star Trek, Star Wars, Alien, The Martian, Armageddon, The Right Stuff, Apollo 13 are just a few.

Maybe it's because there aren't any other people up there? LOL. 

Okay I had an accidental discovery on this card! And that is how very fun it is to combine a dye ink with a reactive ink. I didn't think about when I was doing it but I love the look. 

The sweet little chick astronaut whizzing through space on her star is from the main kit. To create the background, I first blended Hero Hues inks - purple blue and pink. Over that, I used the new layering galaxy stencil - first with Soft Granite dye ink which reacted with the background in SUCH a cool way! I was expecting dark streaks through it but they reacted with the base layer and gave sort of a lift look that I love! The next layer I used unicorn ink. This is a very cool stencil. For the moon, I just used my Circle Infinity dies and markers to create craters, and then used the sentiment from the kit

Here's what comes in the kit:

This beautiful moon phase die is one I wish my dad could see! It's STUNNING. All I did was run it through with black and holographic cardstock, and then piece the holographic pieces back in. It's so beautiful in real life and SO quick and easy to make.

Yesterday's card features a new Peter Max style space background cling that comes in the kit. I thought it would be fun to do something that was very popular back in the late 1900s with the sun from the main kit, and that was to stamp the outline in a complementary color, rather than black and then just color it carefully. The little cloud dies are from the kit too.
