Astro Tobie

Hi again! I've been hard at work on my grandnephew's birthday card - this one took quite some time, but I am really happy with the outcome! The June monthly pencil class from Kit and Clowder used an image of a girl astronaut, with an optional boy astronaut you could use. As a monthly class subscriber you can purchase these images at a great discount, so I got both, but I had plans for the boy since this birthday was coming up. The images are from Some Odd Girl, with Astro Tobie for the boy and Space Cadet Tia for the girl. Well, I didn't have time to learn the pencil coloring and I feel more comfortable with my Copic markers, so I decided to try the image using my markers. I tried to use colors that looked close to the image in the pencils class. Then, I had to do the background - another issue! Well, going back in time to the May 2016 Markers Monthly Class, I remembered the background was something I thought I could use for this image. So I go to work! I had to draw free-hand the earth and moon, then used a white pen for the stars, even drawing in the Big Dipper and my grandnephew's name - LOL! I used Wink of Stella on the lighter areas of the background, Glossy Accents on the helmet, and I glued a lot of small bling on many, many stars. I used my Silhouette Cameo to make the diecuts. I even colored in the window on the spaceship with a silver pen. I hope you enjoy my card!
