*** ETA Whoops. This is the problem with having 2 blogs, you sometimes forget to check which one you're posting on. Luckily this post has an actual SF connection, so I'm leaving it up. Card crafting is my biggest time sink after reading. ***
Since I posted a space card yesterday I figured I'd post another one today. I made this card for a science fiction fan I know using Stampscape stamps and techniques.
I used a piece of glossy cardstock to stamp on, so I could blend the different inks. I started off by stamping the astronaut, then I masked an area off to be the planet and stamped the satellite (so part of it would be behind the planet, making it look further away.
I stamped the astronaut and satellite again on scrap paper, which I fussy cut out and sprayed with repositional adhesive so I could use them as masks.
With the figures masked, I masked off the sky and started inking the planet using different shades of red and black. I used a marker for the black spot. I then masked the planet and sun and inked in my background space in shades of blue with black at the edges.
After removing the masks, I inked the sun and gave it an aura of yellow glitter glue and added some grey marker to the satellite and astronaut. I then stamped in some meteorites to show that space isn't empty.
I mounted the card on black cardstock and added 2 mini spaceships die cut out of metallic cardstock.
