What can I say except that I had a “Blast” making this lol (bad pun intended). I get all Fired up with an idea, and then Fly with it (hee, hee). If I can think of any more, I will be sure to add them in lol. This is what you get from spending lots of time with ones kids 🙂 So anyways, back to my card, I wanted something fun and spacey. Just wait till you see my next spacy project. I wanted lots of color, lots of bling, and definitely the pooled watercolor for the fire. The flames use the same technique which is featured in the “A Note From” card, and the tutorial for this technique will be up in PCL this week. The actual card design was pretty easy. Cut two circles of the same size for each planet in complementing colors, punch one with holes, trace your holes on the bottom piece, glitter the holes up, then stick your holey layer to the bottom glittered layer with dimensionals. On top of that, the planets are then attached with dimensionals. There is a lot of pop going on with this card. The Pun Fun Rocket was stamped in basic Grey Classic ink, with some generous sponging applied. The twinkling stars are greated with dots of crystal effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter, as well as dotted with a Sakura Stardust pen. I used re-inkers to create my pooled background for the flames, then free-hand cut them. Easy as 1, 2, 3 Blast Off!
