The Alley Way Stamps April Blog Hop!!!

Hello, and hip hip hooray!!!!  It is hop time with The Alley Way Stamps, and that means new stamps, new inspiration, fun and a giveaway woot woot!!! 

For today I decided to use the Blast Off Stamp Set to create a fun and perfect boys card...

I used a diecut star and the spotlight technique to create this card.  I had seen a similar look created by the amazing Kristina Werner and I had a blast creating this card.  To get this look you need to start by stamping the rocket and stars onto cardstock.  Next diecut your star from the center of the rocket and set to the side.  Color the rest of the rocket and smaller stars with various grey Copics/markers, and go over the full panel with grey/black distress ink. Then Color the diecut star in bright colors to help it stand out, and adhere it back with the rest of the image (sort of like a puzzle).  This technique is great to do with lots of images, so I hope I've inspired you to try it!

I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: anything Goes
