Blast Off!

Hey everyone! :) I hope you're having a restful Sunday afternoon! I wanted to share a card I made last night using Unity's new set 'Sketchy Little Boy'. Being the only female in a house FULL of boys, I thought this set would come in handy. :)

You can tell by the rocket ship on my card just how LARGE these images are! Love it! I decided to go 'old school' and bring out my Prismacolors on this one. I use to use my pencils all the time until I became a Copic addict... and I'd forgotten how great of a tool they were! It made everything so easy because the pigment stays true even on top of my kraft cardstock. I smoothed it all with mineral spirits. Fun stuff.

And... if you look closely, you can see the dimension and shine that the Glossy Accents gives to the rocket window. Cool! :)

Many of you commented that you liked having the supply/instruction list on my previous post... so I thought I'd try to do that as often as I could. :)
