TCP Tuesday 294-Shoot for the Stars

It's time for a new TCP Tuesday challenge at The Cat's Pajamas!  Tammy is our hostess this week and she's drawn up a great sketch for us to be inspired by.  Alma has generously created cut files for the sketch to use with your cutting machines or, if you don't have a cutting machine, to print and cut by hand, so be sure to stop by the TCP blog if you want to try them out.

Shoot for the Stars card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's PajamasHere's my take on the sketch.  I used the large circle panel to make a textured moon as a backdrop for Poochie's rocket from the Space Cadet set.  I colored the rocket with Copic markers and used foam tape to adhere it to the bottom of the moon.

To go with my card's space theme, I layered the moon over a shiny silver paper strip on a navy cardstock panel.  After considering sentiments from a few different TCP sets including the Constellation Prize set, I settled on the "shoot for the stars" sentiment from the Aim High set.  The banner piece was cut with one of the dies from the CutUps Framed Up 2 set.  A few sparkly silver enamel dot "stars" scattered around the panel gave the card one more space-like element.  I adhered the finished panel to a contrasting red card base.

Be sure to stop by the TCP blog for more inspiration and for all the details on how you can play along with the challenge.  Challenge participants have a chance to win a Cat Cash prize (with a little extra thrown in if you use TCP stamps/dies) and to be named the Swanky Stamper of the month, which earns you a slot in an upcoming TCP release blog hop along with a selection of stamps from the release!  Be sure to link up your card on the TCP blog for a chance to win.
