What's new? I've finally branched into alcohol markers. I picked up some cheap ones (Ohuhu Brand - 80 ct.) off Amazon to see how much I like them before I make the leap to Copic. I've also came across Kindred Stamps from searching Etsy for Star Wars stamps and found 3 sets of Galactic Heros (I'm in love!) I've had a lot of fun experimenting with coloring the characters. There are a bunch of pop culture stamps I really want but will have to pace myself...
Tatooine scene - I tried to make it as accurate as possible with the double setting suns. I just sponged some yellow ink onto some light yellow paper for the small sun. I used some yellow and pink ink on cream paper for the large sun. I quickly used some varying sized circle punches.
For the card base I used some cream paper and for the desert dunes I sponged some "Hello Honey" Stampin Up ink. I created a rolling hill template out of a clear plastic sheet I have for shaker cards (.007 thickness). This was the first time I did this and I made 6 cards bases at once. I should have paid close attention to the template and made sure there was no ink seeping under the the back side. I have some smudges that I could have prevented.
I used the same template to mark and cut the curve for the bottom of the building. I used a speech bubble from a Lawn Fawn "A Birdie Told Me" set with the die and a Lawn Fawn "Lift the Flap Stitched Door" for the droids to hide behind.
I'm happy with the finished product. I plan on putting a birthday sentiment on the inside (that is mostly what I give out). I'll probably use the Lawn Fawn "Out of this World" set - Hope your birthday is out of this world, for the inside.
I hope you love it as much as I do :)
