Enjoy The Ride

So yesterday my little boy turned 7 years old.  I don't know where the time went!  I keep telling him to stop growing up but he won't.  LOL.  Anyway, I needed to make a card for him and wasn't sure what to make.  Then I remembered these cool stamps my husband got me for Christmas .  They are from a company called Dragonfly Laser.  And that's all I know.  Take a look....


Doctor Who stamps!!  I love Doctor Who and so does Donovan.  So I first took the Tardis and stamped it in midnight pigment ink (Color Box) and embossed in clear.  I took a couple of Spectrum Noir markers and coloured the light on top and the window, then I created my space/galaxy.  Now because I had to stamp my Tardis on white paper I had to sponge on black ink for my galaxy.  It didn't matter is it wasn't solid as that just added to the misty quality of the galaxy.  I then sponged on a little yellow, pink, and blue ink randomly.  Then I splattered white paint with my trusty toothbrush tool, taking care to cover my Tardis, to create my stars.  I highlighted some of the bigger "stars" by using an pencil eraser head and some white ink and spinning it in spot.  It creates a halo around the star like it's glowing.  I attached my panel to a white card base and then stamped my sentiments in black.  The Happy Birthday is by STAMPlorations and the Enjoy the Ride is by Studio G.  I just love how this turned out.  I also stamped the other Doctor Who stamp I got of a Dalek inside.  My son also loved the card.  :-)

I'm going to enter this card into Addicted to Stamps and More's, Anything Goes challenge.

Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you are all having a great week!
