Today the Mama Elephant Design Team is showcasing new Space Bears Stamps and coordinating dies. Distress Paints and white embossing make the perfect space background and white stitching around the edges of the Pizazz Pieces Die give a nice finished edge.
For the galaxy background, I dabbed Chipped Sapphire, Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade, and Cracked Pistachio Distress Paints on the Ranger Craft Sheet and spritzed the paints with water. I pressed watercolor cardstock into the watered down paints. Once the background was dry I pressed the background into Picket Fence Distress Paint for the look of stars in the galaxy.
When the panel was dry, I die cut the panel with the A2 sized Pizazz Pieces Die. I stamped a greeting and stars and planet images from the Space Bears Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and heat set with white embossing powder.
I sewed around the edges of the Pizazz Pieces panel with white string and a needle.
I stamped the bear, balloon, and rocket from the Space Bears Stamp Set on smooth white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored in the images with Copic Markers. I cut the images out with scissors and adhered them to the space scene. I added detail to the balloon string and eye of the bear with the Sakura Black Glaze Pen, sparkle to the balloon with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen, and gloss to the space helmet with Glossy Accents.
