Pink Paislee Rocket

So, yesterday's card was too girly and this is the one that met with ds's approval and was boyish enough for his friend.

The card base is textured Wild Wasabi and the patterned paper is from the Hostess Prints Pack.  I'm going to miss the In Colors from this past year but have a feeling that it will only be fleeting because the new In Colors ROCK!!!!  Other colors used are Blue Bayou and Neenah Solar White.

I stamped the rocket from Pink Paislee's Vintage Pop on Neenah Solar White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with the following Copics:  BG000, BG10, BG72, BG75, YG11, YG17, and G21.  I went over the eyes and smile with a Black Copic Spica Glitter pen for a hint of sparkle--boys like things that sparkle, too, right?  The rocket is cut out with an oval nestie and mounted on a Blue Bayou piece that is also cut out with an oval nestie.  I placed this piece on dimensionals and mounted it a little askew so it looked like it was blasting off.  The sentiment is from PTI's Pond Life Sentiments and is stamped with Blue Bayou on Neenah Solar White.  I used my small corner rounder to round one side and a small square punch to clip out the other end.  I got this idea from Natasha's blog.  This is also mounted on dimensionals.  Finally, I cut a little slit in the fold of the card and tied some Striped Wasabi Grosgrain through it.  This was a fun card to make and I really, really love my Pink Paislee Vintage Pop set.  I can't believe I've made 4 different cards with this set.  I'm infamous for getting a set, using it once, and then moving on.  My goal is to try to use everything I have for more than one card from now on.

Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
