To the Stars

Morning.
Here is a quick card I made using a fun new stamp set I got by The Cat's Pajamas. 
I wanted to get a chance to play along with the One Layer Simplicity Challenge called 

I began by inking the rocket with black Memento ink and stamped it in the corner of my card front.  I cut a mask and covered it up.  Next, I masked the center area as well and sponged on Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress inks.  I splattered water on that area to resemble the glow of stars.  I removed the mask and coloured the rocket using Copic markers.  
To pull the whole design together, I doodled a border around the edge and stamped the sentiment.

Adding my card to these challenges:

CASology- SIMPLE

Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES

Simon Says- SOMETHING NEW

The Male Room- ANYTHING GOES


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- The Cat's Pajamas, STAMPlorations/ Distress ink/ Memento ink/ Fine line bl marker/ applicator tool/ Copic markers
