Dr. Who?

Hi friends.  My husband (and my kids) love science fiction, and Dr. Who is right up there.

When SU came out with the set Feeling Sentimental, I knew that the telephone/police box would be perfect for a Dr. Who card, so I bought it.  It's been sitting on my stamp shelf ever since.

SCS recently posted a technique tutorial called burst through.  I was trying to think what stamp I could use and suddenly remembered the police box... PERFECT!

I stamped the image and colored it with watercolor pencils.  I added the light at the top & filled in the light and top two rows of windows with a white gel pen.  Then I cut it out.

For the background, I used color box petal point chalk ink pads in a variety of colors direct to paper for the burst of color.

When I was rolling the little wedges of paper, I got a little heavy handed and tore the paper all the way through the edge.  Oops!  I decided it wasn't too bad and just glued and taped it back together.  This card is actually version 2.  I didn't like how dark the area behind the Tardis was - not enough contrast.  See for yourself.  Here's version 1.  What do you think? 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
