My Favourite Earthling

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing an outer space card!  I made a galaxy background with alcohol inks and I love how it turned out!

You might remember that I like to make cards for hospitalized children, and there are a couple card drives that I support.  Since I never seem to have enough cards by the time the drives roll around, I've decided to make a couple each month.


  • Digital imageImagine That Digistamp - To the Moon and Back (precoloured)
  • Clear stamp:  Sentiment (Gerda Steiner Alien Invasion)
  • Ink:  StazOn Jet Black (sentiment on vellum), Ranger alcohol inks (Pitch Black, Pool, Stonewashed, Wild Plum, Silver Mixative), Distress Ink Hickory Smoke (sponged on planet)
  • Dies:  Nellie's Multiframe Ovals (planet), speech bubble (unknown), hearts (offcuts from Memory Box Twirled Heart Border)
  • Other:  Memory Box Butterfly Flutter (to create dots on planet), DecoArt Crafter's Acrylic White (splattered on background)

I would like to support the following challenges: Cardz TV 40 AG 1/3; Crafty Creations AG 1/2; Creatalicious AG Optional Birthday UE; Creative Fingers AG 1/3; DL.ART March Linky AG 1/d; Get Creative Fantasy 1/3; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; Imagine That...Digis by Kris Creative Playground Year-round Link-up SIR UE; Jo's Scrap Shack FFC226 AG 1/3; Lil Patch of Crafty Friends AG 1/3; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 1/3; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Happy National Craft Month UE and on Facebook; Three Amigos Blog Hop 12 Out of this World UE; Through the Craftroom Door AG 1/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment wk2 1/5

Good idea making a couple a month, I saw one today for Welcome home cards for the Children's wish foundation which is in London. I Think I have a few I can donate and then start making them on a regular basis just like my Holiday cards. Anyway your card is fabulous super background and cute little monster.
