You're A Blast - CASEd Card

Hi, I am back again, with another card CASEd from the Stampin' Up! IBC 2010-11. This one is from page 76.  I did not have the textured cardstock to make the card out of so I used the "direct to paper" technique with my Old Olive Classic Pad on Old Olive Cardstock.  This technique is extremely easy.  Just open your ink pad up, get your cardfront ready, place the ink pad in your hand with the pad facing the paper, and "smoosh" the pad around on the paper.  You can do it as little or as much as you want.  You can swirl, push, pull, or any other motion you want.  Each motion leaves a different kind of pattern on your cardstock.  I used swirl and push for this one.

In the catalogue, this card uses the Stars #2 die for the Big Shot.  But (horrors and shudder) I don't have it ..... YET!  I know, can you believe it?  I can't what happened there!  But it is on its way to my craft room as I type this!
I watercoloured the rocket using the ink pads listed below and an aqua pen directly onto Whisper White cardstock.  This is possible if you don't use too much water, which breaks down the fibres of the cardstock.  The sentiment "flag" is a strip of cardstock that is hand cut on the end.
Stamp Set:  Pun Fun
Ink:  Old Olive, StazOn Black, For colouring - Concord Crush, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight
Cardstock:  Old Olive, So Saffron, Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant and Concord Crush
Other:  Star XL Punch, small star punch (retired), Old Olive Grosgain Ribbon, Retired Thread, Subtles Brads, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Itty Bitty Circle Punch
Thanks, friends.  You're A Blast!  I appreciate each and every one of you visiting my blog and leaving all the awesome comments.  I'll be back tomorrow with another Owl card.
