In A Galaxy Far, Far Away ~~ Challenge #242 at Shopping Our Stash

Looking for my Clear it Out post? scroll down or click HERE.

Wow another super interesting challenge at Shopping Our Stash, In a galaxy far, far away means we want you to create something to do with Star Wars, UFOs, Aliens there are so many choices and so much fun.  Now here I am again really being tested on the challenges, first the dreaded one layer then no white on a project and now something I have nothing in my huge stash of digis, stamps or even paper to work with....to the rescue again....Pinterest.  I found a colouring book image that I could resize and once it was coloured the card sort of evolved. Here is what I came up with for the challenge.

I had a plan to open and use my texture paste, I have no idea where my pallet knife is, in fact the whole box of oil paints is missing so on to plan B....I used a stencil from Crealies I purchased it from a local buy sell board. First I inked it with versamark water mark then embossed it with Ranger Red.Embossing Tinsel, I now have red tinsel on everything. The sentiment is computer generated.

The inside is finished with a Penny Black sentiment 365 days.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you will go to the dark side and show us a project with Aliens, UFOs or go deeper to Star Wars.

Awesome job, Barb! I think this challenge forced us all to step a little outside our box! Great job of pulling all these disparate elements together into a great project!

That embossing tinsel does like to travel, doesn't it? Makes for a cool background, though. And great save on the outer space image!
