Father's Day Creations with the Grands: Isabelle

This is Isabelle. Or Izzy. She is the very definition of quirky! She made cards for her Grandpa Craig and her stepdad, my son, Dakota. She spends every other weekend with her grandpa Craig, which is pretty darn special!

For her grandpa, Izzy wanted to do something featuring one of his favorite movies series. Sci-fi and space!

We did a watercolor sponge-and-spritz, which Izzy was loathe to cover up! Rich Razzleberry, Coastal Cabana, and Blueberry Bushel are the colors we used.

She embossed a panel of Coastal Cabana with the new Maps Etc. embossing folder from Stampin' Up!

The stamps used here are Space Explorers from Kindred Stamps, and Dream Big from Hero Arts.

She kept the space theme going with the card for Dakota, and combined several sets from Kindred Stamps:
Galactic Adventures the Sequel
Galactic Adventures the Third 

There are cut files available for sale on the Kindred Stamps website that work with my Silhouette Cameo, and I had a pile of these precut and stamped on watercolor paper. That made getting this card easy!

I colored these images with a combination of Distress and Stampin' Up! markers. I colored the images incompletely, then came in with a watercolor brush to fill them in. I added texture to the hair and fur by coming back in with the same color marker and adding flick marks.

No, I did not want the children playing with my good markers. Or the watercolor brushes. That would have turned into something I could not take back. 😐

Despite the lack of rainbows, unicorns, and the color pick, Izzy was happy with her creations.

Here are the supplies that I can link to, and that I could remember! I did link to the stamp sets in the body of the post that I can't do affiliate links to.
