Hello! Many of the May release stencils from A Colorful Life Designs hint at an outer space theme, but I opted to use them in other ways. I love astronomy, don’t get me wrong, but I wanted to show versatility with these fun stencils and not pigeon hole them. Today’s card uses the Meteorites stencil, with an old digi from The Greeting Farm called Ebony.

The version I have of Ebony isn’t available in the shop now, but there is another one HERE. I colored her some time ago with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens on Canson Mixed Media paper. I used the colors on her to help me choose everything for the rest of the card. I had some sheet music that I sprayed with Distress Oxide sprays in Crackling Campfire, Villainous Potion, and Salvaged Patina. You may have seen me use this before, as I have a few cards with this sprayed background. There’s at least one more coming up later this month. Also, you might see some flashes of metallic teal….I had used Tainted Love Teal from Lindy’s Magicals (use code ALISONHEIKKILA for 10% off) on the Spring Foliage stencil. It’s super subtle, but adds a bit more interest to the sheet music.
On top that background, I stenciled the Meteorites with Turquoise Sea Glitz Glitter Gel from Gina K Designs and Therm O Web. Once it was dry, I trimmed the edges with my Tonic/Tim Holtz Deckle Trimmer. It picks up some of the Lindy’s Magicals, but doesn’t take over the whole card. I really wanted more pink….bright pink, to pull out the pink in her head band and sneakers. I inked my card base really well with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I love that color. I opted to not put a sentiment until I know who I am sending the card to.
I love the rocker vibe this card has. From the cool dig, to the funky stencils and sheet music, I think the card has a lot of energy. Plus, I love bright pink and teal.
