Hidden Galaxy Slider

Hi there,

it's Tanja here with another hidden slider card. My son was so excited about the hidden slider mechanism that he wanted to create a Galaxy card using this technique and what better stamp sets for this project than the Gerda Steiner Designs Blast off and Alien Invasion?

  • create a multi-layer Galaxy background using watercolor paper, the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors
  • build the hidden slider mechanism as explained in the Happy Birthday Snail card blog post
  • stamp the astronaut, the space ship and the planet from the Gerda Steiner Designs Blast off and Alien Invasion sets
  • color the images with Delta, Touch Twin Brush and Copic Markers
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • cover the window of the space ship and the visor and the astronaut's helmet with Nuvo Crystal Glaze and let this dry thoroughly - I left it overnight
Thanks for stopping by today.
Hugs,
