This was a fun challenge and really made me think so here’s what I did that took me one minute shy of forty five but I had to research a space ship idea online.
I took a round object and drew on the corner of a large post it, cut the circle away and place the squared off piece on the cardstock as a masked and smeared with VersaMark then added Ultra Thick embossing powder. I continued until I thought it was thick enough. Got it hot again and poured on silver Pearl Ex. Heat again and stamped a dandelion type flower to make craters. Too cool! Stamp you rubber in VersaMark before hitting the hot UT.
Then I stamped on the moon and stars, masked the moon with post it note, masked the star with crayon. Sponge on Night of Navy until I liked it then used the brayer that seems to heat the card enough with a fast motion to blend it a little. I did a fast rub off of the crayons with paper towel because I used a blue to see where I’d marked it. Removed the moon mask and hit it with sponge and ink lightly. The rocked is hand drawn and if you couldn’t tell colored with the same technique as the planet using different colors of Pearl Ex and then markers for the man, stripes and slight outline.
