TAWS post #30 - Love You!

Greetings friends!!  Popping in today with an out of this world card (hahaha - sorry I couldn't help myself) using this month's newly released set Blast Off.  I also used an older TAWS set called Out Of This World.  It's a perfect match with this month's set!
I stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Liquid Platinum embossing powder (love this stuff!).  I then used this die from SSS to cut out the tiny stars using bright purple glitter paper from the open stock area at Michaels.
I watercolored the space ship layering lots of metallics from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set over and over again to achieve a worn and tattered look.  The paints in this set are the most superior watercolor paints I've ever used.  They can be sheer like a traditional watercolor if mixed with the right amount of water but they also have an amazing opaqueness to them that most watercolor paints do not.  They are amazing.  As I was painting I thought the burst of rainbow fire was a fun touch to brighten up the overall image.  I added a layer of Glossy Accents to the window of the space ship for an added textured touch.

I used a circle Spellbinder's die to cut out the purple circle and what you can't really see in the pictures is that I went over the purple circle with my Wink of Stella pen to give it a little extra shine.

Thanks so much for coming by today!  See you Monday!
