Good morning snarky peeps! We have a new challenge starting today at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS: O is for Outer Space! That's right, we want to see your space backgrounds, or space ships, or moonscapes, etc. Just wait until you see the amazeballs creations of the Sisters and our Guest Designer, Sharon. OMG! Here is my take on the challenge:

 ...and the inside:

I think this was probably the hardest challenge for all of the Sisters. Most of us made pretty garbage before figuring it out. The galaxy panel was my second try. I used various inks smooshed on my craft mat, spritzed with water and randomly painted on water color paper. Once dried, I sprinkled gold embossing powder around it, adding those three bigger clumps. I took a stick pin and carefully made swirls in them to create my spiral galaxies, then heated the panel from underneath. The sentiment is stamped with alpha stamps. I found this hoarded gold holographic paper and used it to frame the main panel. (and yes, it's very hard to photograph, BTW) Here's another shot:

Now it's your turn to explore brave new worlds. To link up your project at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! To go boldly, yada yada yada. LOL! Please do yourself a big favor by visiting the blogs of my Sisters and our Guest Designer, Sharon, and leave them some bloggy love! Thanks for visiting!
