Out of this World - Stash Only at International Art & Soul Challenge

Our theme this fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge, chosen by DT member Chriss, is Use stuff you already own/Stash.

I've had this alien scene rubber stamp for a long time; it managed to organized away from my craftroom, so this is my first time using it. I used colored embossing markers (Marvy) to color the this stamp & the one on the back (V's Sweet Ideas) before heat-embossing in clear powder. I then used the resist technique to add the background. I used circle dies to create the holes & "planets" and used a die to cut the stars from a hand-inked paper. For the alien on the second panel, I fussy-cut just the skateboard part, reversed it, colored it & heat-embossed "rock on" directly into it. Then I added the little stamped alien. I made the blue paper with ink smooshing.
