Spaceboy Birthday

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well & you don't have too many April Fool's jokes played on you today! I think Spaceboy Skip has the right idea..get out of Dodge & take a little joy ride! To make my spacey birthday card, I started by sponging the purple inks onto white c/s. Then I used a dotty stencil &  a pencil eraser w/ white pigment ink to add the white dots.  After die cutting it & the white top panel, I stacked them & put them in my Misti. Then I stamped Spaceboy on top of both (w/ Memento), added some color to the stars & overstamped w/ the Versafine. After taking them out of the Misti, I put a scrap of the X-Press It white into the Misti, stamped him again, colored w/ Copics then overstamped again.
I fussy cut Skip & few of the stars, etc. and added them over the original image. There are 2 little meteor things because I lost one, did it over, then found it again. For the greeting, I cut down the circle cut out to make it a little smaller. I used the leftover ring on the inside after I sponged it w/ the purple ink. Below is the inside & the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
