July Krafty Peeks...Day ONE! Blast Off!

**warning lots of pictures ahead**

Welcome to Day ONE of our JULY Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

We are kicking off this month's release of new stamps with a super cute set that is out of this world!
Today's set is by artist, Cheryl Grant!
It's called BLAST OFF!
 This amazing set features our fabulous kiddos, 
Lucas and Lulu along with their puppy pal plus several awesome sentiments!
I was very inspired by this set and the watercolour galaxy paintings
I found online. I created this canvas by first laying down some matte medium (this helps the watercolours to be absorbed) and then painting multiple layers of watercolours.
In between the layers I had to let it dry so it took about a week to create the background.

I then stamped the images I wanted to use out and coloured them up with my copics.
I had to fussy cut them out and then used white glue to adhere them onto my canvas.
Once that was done I used glow in the dark NUVO drops to create the stars and the accents on the spaceship. I finished this off with white gauche and using a white pen I made the little star bursts.

These are perfect for the kid cards, invitations, scrapbook pages, tags, bags and so much more! 
And if you haven't tried a galaxy background yet, you can use our fabulous new Hybrid Inks and give it a whirl with this set!
You will see these fabby images in action as you hop around the Krafty blogs! You'll see the list of Krafty design team members below and be sure to leave some love at each stop because one lucky commenter is going to WIN a $10 gift voucher to the krafty shop EACH DAY this week!!
Plus we're doing a GIVEAWAY of the ENTIRE release on the Krafty Friends facebook page! The winners will be announced at the party so don't miss it!

Happy hoppin'!
