CDS Sneak Peek - Lost In Space

I saved this cute set for my last posting of the day. This adorable set is called Lost in Space and was illustrated by none other than myself :) It will be available on July 1st and I know that you all are already counting down the days until you can buy it *giggle*

I don't know what has gotten into me lately but I have been on a bold and bright papers kick (you would see more if it in the Dirty Dozen Gallery). I guess it's been the bright and sunny weather with all of the colourful beach toys that has gotten into me! Needless to say since this is a silly looking alien set, it called for some fun colours ;)

This card is 5 1/2" x 51/2". I have clear embossed some stars on the turquoise DP and watercoloured the main image with my aqua painter and tombow markers. I added some diamond stickles for some fun sparkle and put crystal effects on the windshield to make it extra glossy. The spaceship has been paper toled and placed on top of one REALLY sparkly star. The star is cut from a sheet of Doodlebug Sparkly Designer Paper - fun stuff! I have punched out 3 little circles with my cropodile and adhered them to my DP and finished it off with a trio of silver mini brads (CDS).

Lori McCrosky has a picture of what the entire set looks like on her blog, you just have to scroll down to see it :) Be sure to hop around and check out the links below to see what the girls have come up with to show you!

I canNOT believe how lucky I am, Kim. I absolutely love aliens and everything about them (with a blog like AlienAnessa's Planet, could that be??!!). And you've created a whole acrylic stamp set of them??? With a wonderful ship??? I'll never be able to thank you!!!
