Space Age

I saw the ‘mode of transport' challenge at Artful Times and could think of so many possibilities that I was stuck for a while.

My self-imposed challenge of using up my Docrafts Goody Bag helped me decide on my mode – the rocket. The goody bag contains 1950s style papers and I thought I’d do an (in those days) futuristic  space age look card.

The spaceman stamp is a single acrylic stamp – I got it at a show, don’t know brand. The rockets are made from a Cuttlbug die (aimed at kids!). The dark circle was cut out from October Afternoon Rocket Age paper.

I really had fun making this!

It looks as if that was a fun card to make Marina. I love that spaceman stamp - what a find that was, and the rockets are great going around. bet not many think of doing this for a mode of transport - love it.
Thanks for sharing with us at Artful Times again Marina,
Hugs, Neet x
