The Space race!

Good morning. There's a fun new challenge starting today over at Fab N Funky, it's hosted by our lovely and talented Wends, and the theme she has picked is 'space race'.  Our fab sponsors this week, Sassy Studio Designs, have given the DT some wonderful images to play with, I knew I wanted to use Yoda Honey as soon as I clapped eyes on him, I couldn't wait to colour this little chap!  I used my trusty copics to colour, then fussy cut the image. It's mounted over a piece of black cardstock with stars die cut and punched out of it, which in turn is layered over the green cardstock. I used the cut out black stars on this. I used a yellowy green pencil to create his 'aura'.


The sentiment banners are computer generated. I'm really pleased how it turned out...a perfect card in readiness for my Star Wars Crazy Son in law!
Now hop on over to Fab N Funky to see the creations from the rest of the team...they're out of this world....and enjoy them you will!

Quick update on the invalid...he's home now and doing really well! Early days yet but the doctors are very pleased and the prognosis is optimistic! (Thank goodness)

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
Chris

Such a fun card Chris. I love the neon and black together, works so perfectly for the space theme and creates a great 'expanse' behind your Yoda! hugs :)

Fantastic card, Chris - I love the way you've showcased Yoda and the super colours and sentiment. Just read about your husband's accident with a circular saw - I'm glad things are going well for him now. My husband isn't happy unless he's playing with some electrical tool - I do worry especially when he's cutting down trees in our local forest!!

So relieved to hear the good news about your hubby. Hoping that the surgery is a total success and he has full sensation and range of motion once they're able to take the bandages off. So glad to hear they're happy with his progress, my word it must have been a horrible day for you when you got that call and to have the drama with Mathilda on top! Thank goodness for that night in not so shining armour who helped you. Been thinking of you, so it's fab to hear things are on the improve and you must feel SO much better having Geoff home again. I cannot even begin to tell you how fabulous your card is! Utterly LOVE it! So stoked that all the DT got on board with my Space theme and really embraced it. I LOVE the aura, so so clever!! Utterly brilliant card hun and I bet your son-in-law is going to be so stoked to be given that. Super bespoke and oh so special! Hugs, Wends x
