Catch the bug / Bugaboo Free Friday / Thinking of you

Friday March 20, 2015
 
Free Friday at Catch the bug  and you'll find this cutie in the Bugaboo store
 
 
This is the Free Friday called ASTRONAUT    and I wanted to have him look like he is in space so I used some watercolor paper and my Kuretake Garsai Tambi paints and just kept applying the paints and drying and adding and drying till I got the effect I wanted. I then watered down some white paint and used a paint brush and splattered to get a sky full of stars.  I wish it looked as good on the computer as it does in the real.. I had this great sentiment from My Favorite Things that went perfect for the image also the rocket is from MFT.  I embossed some paper till I got a nice smooth look in silver and die cut the rocket out, I did the same with the flame but hand cut it out. Gave a nice added touch of space to the card.
