Martian Fun

Martian Fun - Bugaboo is sponsoring this fortnights sketch challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy. We have new designers joining us, so take a look at the new talent!

The DP was a scrap from my blue scrap drawer. Yes, I have my scraps divided by color and stored in a chest that I had custom made for that purpose. The drawers are 12 x 12 and there are quite a few of them in the chest.

I have photos of my craft room on another page of this blog. I was very blessed; as my husband just retired and we had our dream home built. I love the craft room that my wonderful husband let me have total freedom to design and make it however I wanted.
My image is martianship by Bugaboo. The images from there are all so cute and quick to color up. I colored martianship with Copic's, then added Diamond Glaze to the opened ship and the martians helmet to make them shiny.

The stars were punched with CM punches out of scrap sugar paper. I love how sparkly sugar paper. I tore the paper, so that the martian ship would look as if he were bursting through space.

Did you notice the glittery milky way? That is glow-in-the-dark glitter. I photographed it without lights, but the effect did not show up.
