Craftin Desert Diva Designer creative challenge: Birthday card stash

For my card I used one of the Aliens in the digi stampset Outerspace.
I printed it on marker paper and cut it out. I put them all on the sheet, but decided this one was the cutest. I colored him with alcohol markers.

For the background i Inkblended Distress Oxides on the cardbase (Blueprint Sketch and Mermaid Lagoon) then splattered water and to make it sparkly I used the Sheer Shimmer Spritz (sparkle) all over, so a bit of shimmer would peek out my panel.

The sentiment is from the same set and I printed it on normal card and cut it to size.
Then I diecut the Scribble Snowflake but make sure all the bits stayed inside or placed them back. I wanted the opening, otherwise I could have embossed it, but now I just put sticky tape on the back of the panel to keep all the bits together. I appreciate it’s a snowflake, but in this context I think it might look like stars or sparkles in a lasergun fight?…

I mounted the panel with foamtape and tucked the critter inside and outside, mounting it with foam to compensate the height difference  or adhering it Nuvo Deluxe with liquid glue where it sits flush with the panel.

Materials used:
Craftin Desert Diva Scribble Snowflake dies

Craftin Desert Diva Outer Space digi stamp set

Distress Oxides:
Spectrum Noir markers
Crafter’s Companion Neenah Paper.
