Beam Me Up

I was watching mandala rock painting on YouTube and thought that would be a fun idea to incorporate into a card somehow. I didn’t have any acrylic paint handy (can you believe that?!) but I did have a stack of Lawn Fawn stamps on my desk. So I thought the smaller stamps in those sets would be perfect to make one and this is what I ended up with. Except for the planning phase, this was a fun no-brain card to work on.

I started by cutting a square white paper then marking the center and using a drawing compass to create a few guides for when I stamped. I used several different Lawn Fawn stamps but the focal one is Beam Me Up. The planet was stamped first in the center then I worked my way outward. I selected the smallest stamps for the inner circles then I was able to add the small (yet larger) alien characters. Confetti candy was used to fill out the corners.
I colored the images first and then filled in the background with a dark blue for the space sky. After that was finished, I added the stars with a white gel pen. Lastly, I added the rockets and space ships on top with foam tape in the corners.

These are the supplies I used:
drawing compass
Copic atyou Spica glitter pens
Sakura Gelly Roll white pen
