I made this card for my nephew's 7th birthday and are popping it into the SCS Free for All Friday Challenge of "Cards with character" - my character being the cute little green alien :-) See this link for the deets on the challenge: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...a-t549077.html
I stamped the image onto 140lb watercolor paper and colored the image with watercolor pencils and after letting it dry overnight, I added some Glossy Accents to the domed glass which is hard to see in the photo and I also chalked around the image with blue chalk (not that you can see it in the photo either!)
I punched a couple of stars from various papers from the Bo Bunny "Blast Off" 6 x 6 pad and popped them up on dimensionals above the image.
I added 3 blue Craftworkcards Candi dots (from the Prince Charming set) with dimensionals on the bottom RHS. The side panel was dry embossed with my Cuttlebug and a Crafts Too Star ef except that I had the folder back-to-front and de-bossed it instead! Fortunately, it really didn't matter and looks just fine as it is. I just wanted to add a bit of texture to the card.
Lastly, I tied on some "The Twinery" honeydew twine.
