Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #34 Little Green Men

Its time for another Friday challenge at Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges!  This week the theme is a fun one, "Little Green Men".  Here is what I came up with:

Can you believe I didn't use any ribbon on this one, lol?  I started with these cute images from Squigglefly.   I coloured the alien and his saucer first then chose some coordinating cardstock.  I die cut a large circle from gray and trimmed it down to the size I wanted and drew some craters with a grey marker.  On the navy piece of cardstock I stamped a stars pattern over the entire piece with yellow chalk ink.  The sentiment was printed on white cardstock and trimmed, then I inked the white and the planet with charcoal ink.

Once I adhered the main panel I adhered the planet in place and coloured in random stars with glitter pen.  I adhered the sentiment with foam tape, adhered the saucer directly to the background and adhered the alien with foam squares.  I added all of the green gemstones to the o's in the sentiment, and added some clear gemstones randomly to some of the stars. 

Finally I added some diamond glaze to the saucer and to the alien's eyes. It was the first time I have used the stuff so it wasn't perfect but I think I did ok. 

Now its your turn! This week's prize is a $5 gift certificate from Clear Dollar Stamps.
