Shopping Our Stash - In A Galaxy Far, Far Away

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Thanks, Joshua!
Tine for another fun Challenge at Shopping Our Stash!  This week,  Donna is hosting and she wants us to deplete our stash by creating a project using:
Creatures from a Galaxy Far, Far, Away.
   (Star Wars, space, UFO's, Aliens)   
I own no cute stamps and I really didn't want to buy a digital just for this challenge, so, I turned to my grandson and asked him to draw a character from another galaxy.  So here we have Galaxia from Galaxis a planet in the Oreye Galaxy!  He drew this in about five seconds and then went back to his "serious art."  I like her and she now hangs on the wall in my sitting room.

Stash Items:  Vellum, Paper, Canvas, Aluminum Foil, Chalks
I created my Galactic background by embossing a piece of aluminum foil with the WRMK Next Level embossing folder "Wave."  I used Maya Gold® Blue Glitter Paint and added a little additional glitter.
I used Mod Podge™ to attach a piece of blue vellum to the canvas and mounted my aluminum foil using Scor-Tape.

I plan to use my Silhouette Mint to create a stamp using this image.  
I think Joshua will get a kick out of that!

Hope to see you in our SOS Challenge!
