Poochie's In the Air!

The past few weeks I've just had so much going on that I haven't been able to work on one of my favorite weekly sketches. Jen's Sketch for You To Try.  

This one looked super fun though, and since Alma is going to be my room-mate at CHA (waving HI Alma!!) I was inspired to get Cat's Pajama's Stamps off the shelf where they had been waiting patiently behind a few DT assignments, and into the rotation.  I totally adore this set titled  It's a Mod Mod World

The designer paper is Hello Sunshine, one of the latest releases from Cosmo Cricket - what a fun set of colors, so bright and summery, just right for a TCP creation!  

I stamped the rocket ship with my Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad, then colored the image with copic markers.  My husband was annoyed that I made the boosters green, he said they should be orange or red, and I said "Really, dogs also don't fly rocketship, so give a girl some creative license!!"  After I had colored everything, I masked the bottom half of the ship so that I could stamp Poochie into the opening, then coated the top window with Diamond Glaze for a shiny glassy effect. 

While you can't see it here, the silvery portion of the rocketship was given a little glimmer with my sakura stardust pen, then blended around with my aquapainter - a great tip from Jen herself! 

When I went to link this up to The Cat's Pajama's I realized that its also TCP Tuesday, which means that one of the DT Members has posted a weekly challenge, this time its Leigh with a fun sketch.  Since my stamps are still out and handy, I'm going to be playing along for sure!
