You Rock(et)!

Welcome to Saturday, and to the new Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge, O is for Outer Space

Doesn't the challenge badge alone make you want to participate? Although it was very tempting to get out my Doctor Who stamps (I know, geek alert) yet again for a challenge like this, I went a little more generically traditional this time. 

I started by stamping and embossing the rocket in silver and the fireworks and stars in sparkle embossing powders. Then I sponged a night sky over them in various blue and purple distress inks, then splattered a little perfect pearls mist for background stars. While that dried, I stamped and embossed a few more rockets so I could colour, fussy-cut and layer them for the look I wanted. The main body of the rocket is also coated in some iridescent medium for sparkly shine. A close-up:

After embossing the sentiment in silver, I coloured it to match the rocket flames before adding it to the card along with the skyline silhouettes. I think this sentiment would be so much better if it said "You Rock(et)", but perhaps that's just me. 
With all the shimmer and sparkle going on, I'm going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, Add Some Shimmer. 
Be sure to check out the many different galaxies my sisters in snark have visited this week, as well as our newest Queen of Snark and guest designer, Sharon! And then I hope you will strap on your jetpack and join us!

Hahaha! I see "Major Tom", not Doctor Who, so I'm as much of a geek! This looks fab - Kate mentioned seeing it and thinking it is really cool, too!

I just love everything about this card, the night sky, the skyline and the sparkly elements. Of course I would have loved Dr Who as well!
