Reach for the Stars


So here's my second of 3 ideas for the current Create a Smile Challenge.

I stamped the images from To the Moon on Copic Safe paper with MFT Extreme Black ink and cut them out, then colored with my Spectrum Noir Markers and mounted them with foamtape.

For the background I looked through my Scrap paper. Ideally I would have liked it a little darker, but it looks like space nonetheless. And I had to decide if I wanted a  curvy or straight or even ripped strip of paper, you can see I settled

for the most CAS option.

The sentiment is also from To the Moon and I stamped it with Versafine ink.

Nuvo shimmr pen on the helmet and a few details on the planets.
