CCEE: Celebrating Outer Space!

Hi CCEE Stamper Fans!

Blast off! 

It's May!
 That means a brand new month 
and it is time to introduce our new hostess:  Frances!
She has a wonderful line up of challenges this month ~ stay tuned!

Tomorrow 3rd May is International Space Day 
and the 4th of May is Star Wars Day ~
May the FOURTH be with you! :)

I've created 3 seperate cards for this challenge because I
got out the distress oxide inks and had
way. too. much. fun! 
Since it was space themed, I used my Space Explorer stamp set
from the always perfect Torico's Birdie Brown series at My Favorite Things.

Here's card #1 ↓


 Here's card #2 ↓

 And card #3 ~ the string idea was inspired by this YouTube video!

 And all of the friends in one place! ↓

All of my images were colored with Copic markers or promarkers
and the dies used were also from My Favorite Things,
except the Space Explorer set.  
These have been cut out with my Brother Scan n Cut,
and the embossing is actually a combo of something new I tried.
I was going for a crisp impression by using a combination of white ink
and white embossing powder ~ and while it gave a grainy, almost moonlike
appearance, it's not something I'd probably try again :)

I'm just OVER THE MOON with these cards and 
so excited with how they turned out ~
Mission Accomplished!

Thanks for your visit!
Big hugs bigger blessings ♥
