When I first saw this stamp set in the Stampin' Up! catalog, I knew that I had to have it. I know, I know. But Shelley, you have four girls, what on earth could you use aliens for? Well, my girls LOVE this set! When they have the chance to stamp, this is one of the sets that they are picking out all the time! This card was a long time in the making. Abi picked out the colors again for me. I started to this card on New Year's Eve. Well, I put it aside because I had classes and other stamping that had to get done. When I went back to work on it I couldn't find my Marina Mist ink pad! I looked everywhere for that ink pad and it just wasn't showing up, so I ordered a new pad. When it came I was putting it away and wouldn't you know it, my ink pad was right there! I tell ya, I looked there 5, 6, 7 times and it wasn't there! Oh well! I'm sure I'm NOT the only one to have done something like this and I'm sure that I will do it again!
The background on this card is embossed with a texture plate and then sprayed with some Smooch spritz. I watercolored the alien and then put Crystal Effects in the helmet. Not sure I'm thrilled with the ground on this card but I couldn't have this alien floating now could I!
