Blast Off:  I created two cards one with Krafty Kolours ink background and one with Alcohol ink.

Finished Background

I colored them with my Copics:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00 and E000
Hair and Fur: E29, E25 and E21
Grey: C9,C7, C5, C3 and C1
Purple: BV08, BV04 and BV02
Blue: BG57 and BG53
Cat: E08, YR18 and YR14

I then stamped the planets in Watering Can Archival ink and then rubbed off the ink with a towel.  It removes the alcohol ink and leaves a ghosting image.  

I colored them with Copics:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00 and E000
Hair and Fur: E29, E25 and E21
Black: W9, W7, W5 and W3
White: W3 and W1
Grey: W5, W3 and W1
Red: R29, R24 and R22

Gold: YR27, YR23 and Y23

I used the Krafty Kolours ink to create the space background and once it was done, I splattered Copic white over the top to create stars.

I added a die cut space ship, planet and stars as well as a planet for them to stand on.  I stamped the sentiment onto the flag to finish off the card.  The blue layer is the Kraftin Kimmie pearlized paper pannel.

  11. You did an amazing job with the alcohol inks space background! I am just beginning to experiment with them, and my backgrounds seem to come out the way they want to! Thanks for the tip on stamping over the inks. How fast do you have to put the stamps on the paper before the inks dry?
