Greetings Earthlings!

It's Tuesday, which means that it's my day to share a project created for Topflight Stamps. I've been watching a lot of old Twilight Zone episodes, so I decided to ink up my Alien Invader Clear Polymer Stamp Set by Visible Image and create a card!

Here's the card, which also uses Visible Image's Time Tunnel Stencil!

  1. Use Memento ink to stamp the alien and one of the two flying saucers from the Alien Invader Clear Polymer Stamp Set onto white cardstock.
  2. Colored both images with Copic markers, fussy-cut, and edge them with a black pen.
  3. Several colors of Distress Oxide Inks were applied directly to my 5x7 Rectangle Gel Press, then blended with a brayer.
  4. A piece of 6x8 Mixed Media paper was pressed onto the Gel Press to pull the first print. Water was misted onto the print, which was heat set. 
  5. This step with different colors until I was happy with the color blend on the print.
  6. The print was heat set again to make sure it was dry as toast.
  7. The Time Travel Stencil was placed onto the Gel Press and Black Soot Distress Oxide was brayered over the stencil. The stencil was removed from the Gel Press and cleaned.
  8. The previously inked print was smoothed onto the Gel Press and the stenciled print was pulled to create the card's background
  9. The print was heat set, sandwiched between two pieces of clean scrap paper, placed on the cutting mat of my Big Shot. The two cutting plates were placed over the the paper sandwich, and run through the machine several times to flatten the paper.
  10. The print was placed onto the STAY-tion and the Constellation stencil was secured to it with magnets.
  11. White pigment ink was lightly sponged over the stencil onto the print and heat set.
  12. The background was trimmed to 4" x 5.25" and edged with Black Soot Distress Ink.
  13. The background was secured to the base of the Stamping Platform.
  14. The prone human stamp and sentiment stamp were positioned on the background. The lid was pressed into the stamps and lifted.
  15.  The stamps were inked with Onyx Black VersaFine Ink, and stamped. 
  16. The space debris stamp from the set was inked with Distress Ink and stamped randomly on the background panel, which was edged, and adhered to a black A2 card.
  17. The Alien and the Flying Saucer images were adhered to the background,
  18. The Quickie Glue Pen was used to add glue in front of the ray gun and under the alien's feet. 
  19. Black and orange glitter were added to complete the card front.
  20. The card front was adhered to a black A2 card.
