Space Rocket

First layer of this card are Distress Inks (Fired Brick, Seedles Preservers and Salty Ocean), then I stamped some stars and rocket trails with Versamark ink and pen, used WOW clear gloss embossing powder and heat embossed it.

The rocket (and the stars) are from MFT stamp set Out of This World, I colored the image with Copics (N3, V05, R20) and blue neon gel pen, added some details with white gel pen and Glossy Accents.

Inspiration for this card: Marika Gewalli, thank you!

I masked a rectangle with washi tape and used Distress Ink (Salty Ocean) to create an ombre effect.

As a final touch I added some sparkly stars and stamped the sentiment.
