Pun Fun Rocket Birthday

I am playing catch up today since I did not get to do the challenge yesturday and also defending my title as Queen of Combos!LOL. This is for 4 challenges this week. 1.Today's LIMITED SUPPLY - DIY-DP.2. Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT - Eyelets.3. Tuesday's COLORS - Real Glorious Navy.4. Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS - Stacked Ribbon.I do frequently use my background stamps and my small background stamps for backgrounds so I wanted to challenge myself. I have never used the markers as Holly did so I gave it my best shot. Learned a lot to NOT do next time but it was fun. Thanks Jen for this challenge. My image is stamped in black stazon then colored w/prismacolor pencils and blended w/gamsol then the edges distressed w/night of navy using sponging. I used an eyelet and it is difficult to see in the pic but I punched out some clear transparency and attached it to the eyelet so it would look like a peep hole. I layered this on squares each 1/4 inch up in size then stacked them off rather than centered. Stacked red on blue ribbon on the left side and heat embossed the senitment on the right. I think this turned out OK but will do things a little different next time. I have just been dying to ink up this rocket ship and today seemed like the day.
