To the moon...

Good morning!

Today I'm playing along in the Farm Fresh Challenge over at The Greeting Farm and the theme this week is "Boys Only". This was just the nudge I needed to break out Space Ian for a card that I've been thinking about doing ever since I got this fun sentiment stamp. It's been ages since I've inked up this little guy and this time I really wanted to try and color him so that it looked like there is a helmet visor over his face. So I used very light skin tones and the E80s for his hair because it has that slight greenish tone, then I used the cool greys right over the whole thing. I think I was fairly successful in achieving the look I was going for though if I had given myself more time I might have added some glossy accents as well to give it a nice shine. And since it is a boy card I really didn't want to fuss up the card too much. I pretty much had the whole thing done but it was looking like it was missing something. So I scanned my messy desk and found the Lawn Fawn Monster Mash set, that little blob monster made for the perfect alien pal to hang with Ian.

Alrighty then, I've got the day off but I have to make a quick trip to town to get an oil change in my car. Fun, fun... who knows though, I may just be tempted to check out Craft Warehouse while I'm there so that the trip doesn't feel like a total loss.  ;)
