Fly Me to the Moon

I printed this spaceship from the Crafter's Companion 'Boys' Cd - it was precoloured in lovely bright colours...but they were too bright for me. I wanted to have a more retro look - like a childhood toy rediscovered by someone who's now very grown up. So I slapped it about with Distress Inks, mounted it on some 'Rocket Age' paper by October Afternoon, stamped a Hero Arts sentiment and slapped on more ink!

I'd like to enter:

A great card for this week theme and I like 'your slapping it about' technique. A new term I must remember. Thanks for joining us this week at CD Sunday.

This would have been my interpretation of this week's challenge......great minds think alike lol. I'm surprised more didn't go this way too. You did a great job with the slapping. Sounds like a fun technique to try.
Good luck in the draw.
