A galaxy card with rotating elements and 3 part video

This card had me thinking right till today, about how to solve certain parts of it, with stuff I had in the house as I can't go out.

I'm entering it to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: transport it, and the AAA challenge #84: watercolor.

I made the video in three parts as each part is quite long, but the first part covers how I made the galaxy with Distress reinkers on Schut watercolor paper.

The second video covers the coloring of the My favorite things images I used from the Space explorer set and Spectrum Noir and Spectrum Illustrator coloring.

The third video covers the assembly. on how I put it all together and make it move.
I guess it's kind of a slider card, but not don't need the special dies.
I used an envelope pin ( i think it's called) and mica or strong acetate to mount the planet and rocket (wich is my means of transportation), they swivel around the pin and around the calaxy circle with the spaceman. so fun, hard to photograph, but so much fun...:-D
