You're A Blast

Just playing around with another Mojo Monday sketch. I find sketches to be just the right springboard to get the creative juices flowing.

I used all retired Stampin' Up! Designer Series paper on this card. The rocket is taken from the stamp set "Pun Fun" and I separated the saying, "You're a blast!" from the rocket by using a Post-it note mask. The rocket was double stamped in Jet Black Staz-on ink once onto the Night of Navy cardstock and once onto watercolor paper to keep the black ink from bleeding into the water coloring. I used my blender pen and Stampin' Up! classic ink pads to color in the rocket. I tend to squeeze out too much water when using the aqua painters. The moon was created using a circle punch and then moving the punch down a bit and punching a partial "bite" out of the original circle.
Hope everyone is having a good week. The weekend's just around the corner! :)
