Starry sketch


As usual when needing to make a kiddie card, I used a couple of challenges to get me going - no idea why I struggle as much as I do with these but I daren't even start to think how long this took me, even with the kickstart!

The Daring Cardmaker's challenge this week is to use stars and the current challenge at Waltzingmouse Fanatics is to use this sketch.

Apologies for the quality of the photo - as any of you who have tried to photograph mirri card will know, it's an absolute nightmare! The card looks more "integrated" in real life but this was as good as the photo was going to get, I'm afraid.

I toook the liberty of changing the third rectangular panel on the sketch to a circle as it fit the space rocket better to make a sort of planet/moon thing there. I used marker caps to stamp the "craters" on there.

This is destined for a wee boy celebrating his sixth birthday, I hope it's OK!

I bet the 6 year old will adore this card; it is a fabulous card. I have problems making cards for any male of any age :)

Oops! I thought I'd already commented - I love this. The space rocket against that little moon is fab! Thanks so much for playing along with Waltzingmouse Fanatics!

Perfect for a 6th birthday for a boy - and the craters are brilliant! And the use of the tracing wheel, too!
