Lookin' Down on Creation.

Hi Everyone

The challenge at Stampotique STARS  has gone over into another week, so I got my thinking cap on and came up with this ensemble.

I firstly took a white tag and painted it in blue and silver acrylic paint.  I then used my Tim Holtz 'stars' stencil and inked versamark through it then took WOW Bling Bling embossing glitter and heat set the stars.

I then went onto the Internet and typed in simple world and simple space helmet . This brought up some images.  I then copied these and shrunk to size.

The 'world' I painted in light blue acrylic paint then with the end of the paintbrush, daubed brown and green paint onto the continents, giving it a bit of depth and let dry.  I then inked around the edge with Ebony Distress ink.  (Rather effective if I may say so!).

Wilbur was coloured in with Promarkers and so was the space helmet.  Wilbur's right arm was shaved off and another left arm put in its place, lifting it up to space.  I think he likes being an astronaut.   

My title ' I feel on top of the world'

was written in a fine permanent ink pen.around the bottom of the world.

Where do you wish you where this week........Sue
