Outer space is something that has occupied the minds and imaginations of human beings for millennia. From the first human who looked up and marvelled at the stars to the space pioneers of the modern age, we've been intrigued by what lies beyond our planet. So many of us had childhood dreams of becoming an astronaut, walking on the moon and meeting extra-terrestrial life! And while these images probably won't help launch anyone into space, they may just be able to feed the imagination of the little astronauts in your life.
Out of This World
digital stamp set
My designers have been busy creating some fabulous cards and projects with the new set. There are some amazing techniques on display here, so please don't hesitate to visit their blogs to find out how they created their cards.
Karin has created a wonderful card in contrasting colours of blue and orange with lots of patterns and shapes. She used two of the images from the set and printed her own sentiment to match.
Don't you just love the bold and vibrant background that Anesha created for her card? All the deep, rich colours contrast beautifully with the fussy cut image of the astronaut.
Carla has made a really fun card that brings to mind all those great shows we watched while growing up... Lost in Space, Star Trek, Marvin the Martian, The Jetsons... it also makes me think of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
Petra has become very adept at using these fabulous crayons to create gorgeous backgrounds for her cards. She's even helping out with a workshop to teach people different techniques to add colour. Make sure you stop by her blog to find out more!
AJ has put together two fabulous cards and a brilliant wall poster using this set. How great would the wall decor look in a kid's space-themed bedroom, or even in a study corner?
Check out the background paper on Judy's atomic card! She coloured the image with pencils and then matched it up with vibrant blues and reds for an out-of-this-world feel.
