My Favorite Martian
It's new new new new release time, again, at Bugaboo Stamps! And such a far out, out of this world image for you, this time! A fun little martian! Don't be afraid, and don't worry! He's friendly and he loves to play! He admits though, that he'd love to come home with you and live there! Life on Mars has just gotten to be too mundane for him, so he's coming here and looking for lots of Bugaboo loving households to live in! Why don't you head over to Bugaboo Stamps and put him in your cart, today?! He'd love to come home with you!
Of course, we have the wonderful Jodie, of Bugaboo Stamps, to thank for bringing him here for all of us to enjoy! I have a sneaking suspicion he's going to be inviting friends to come play with us, too! Whoo Hoo! A Martian party! How fun would that be?! Hurry over and get him for your very own, and let's see what kind of fun the two of you have together! Point your own spaceship over the blog at Catch The Bug and gaze at the wonders of inspiration that the Bugaboo Stamps DT has created with this little guy! They're out of this world creations!
My project today uses the new release image, Martian, from Bugaboo Stamps, and colored with Promarkers. I used the new metallic Promarkers to color in the spaceship. (Silver in this case) I wanted a funky looking card to show off this little guy, so I went with stars and polka dots, and of course, the color green! I mean, how can we have martians without the color green, right?! Both papers are from my stash and seemed perfect for this card. The clouds are hand cut by me - Yes, I know, its easy to tell, and I didn't do a great job on them, I admit. But this little guy just needed some clouds to fly through and I had to make him some to help him out! The clouds were cut in white, cut out and then sponged in two shades of blue. I attached the clouds and image with foam mounting tape, for dimension. The black and white Baker's Twine is from my stash, as well. I thought it was a nice touch for thew card. The button is recycled from and old shirt I threw away. I tied the baker's twine in a bow, in the center of the button.
This turned out to be a cute masculine card, but then, you could use it for a girl, too, if she's really into cute martian guys! I hear they are out of this world talented!
