Out of this world

Happy valentines to you all, I'm not feeling too well today so spent most of the day sat on the sofa but this afternoon I thought I'd give a bit of crating a go. And I'm glad I did, as i discovered I'd been selected in the top 12 over at the ColourQ challenge blog.This was the first time I posted a card to this challenge but I really enjoyed the challenge of a different colour combination than I would usually use.
So, for today's card this card was, as usual, inspired by some of the wonderful work I see on other blogs and websites. The main technique on this card is called spotlighting and a description of what this is can be found here.

The images and sentiment are all from a Kirsty Wiseman stamps set "terrestrial friends". I stamped the alien 3 times and then punched out an oval aperture over the middle one. I restamped the alien on another piece of card and then I coloured this with promarkers and gelly roll pens. I layered up the card with a green mat behind and a strip of ribbon.  Inside I used some bright green vellum to create and insert which also covered up the ribbon.

Thanks for looking,

P.S. just noticed the hand of the first alien has "gone missing" opps!
