The sky's the limit

Good Morning folks.
It's Tuesday so that means another challenge at Cards4Guys. This week the challenge is to create a project with the theme:-

THE SKY'S THE LIMIT

I went a little bit further with my DT inspiration and ended up in Space!


I was sorting through my recent NitWit purchases and came across this little chap in Spaced Out. The earth and backing paper were also from the same set. I made a porthole by using 2 Spellbinder dies inside one another on some very shiny foiled card. The rivets are Cardwork Cards Candi stuck with pads around the rim. The air hose is a piece of cardmakers cord, the flag a cocktail stick and a flag stamped with a Stampendous greeting. The outer porthole was mounted on pads onto a plain white circle over which I had stuck a circle of the DP and a cut out earth. Another plain circle of the same size creased to form a hinge made the back of the card and enabled it to stand.
The whole effect is as if you are looking out at a man on a space walk from inside the capsule. I don't usually do cards like this with no colouring but hey I think it works, great for boys of all ages!

Why don't you you check out what the rest of the team have done for your inspiration and have a go?

I shall enter it in the following challenges:-
The Male Room - Science Fiction
Time Out Challenges - Happy Birthday with a twist of masculine
Papercrafting Challenges - Masculine
Thanks for calling round and say hello why don't you.
