Is there life on Mars? (ATC folio)

ATC folder inside
Hello stampers!! It's Amy, and I have a little ATC folio I created to share today!
I am a big fan of the show "American Horror Story- Freakshow," and at the end of the first episode, Jessica Lange's character sings a cover of David Bowie's "Is There Life on Mars?" This got my creative juices flowing for some funny reason. I wanted to make something out of my box, with an element of freakiness.
I started the card by water coloring the front of the folio, using watercolor pencil to create space like rings, and used some white ink splatter across the page as well, for stars.

I then stamped the Man in The Moon stamp, using tuxedo black memento ink. On a separate bit of smooth cardstock, I stamped the moon again, and cut it out to give an angular illusion, and some layering. I then hand wrote the song quote underneath.

For the inside of the folio, I sprayed Dylusions ink in black, and added splatter of Hero Arts ink in neon pink. I stamped the Banksy Gas Mask Flower Girl stamp onto cardstock, but to give the fading illusion, I stamped using Big Brush pens from Faber Castell Design Memory Craft, and colored her skirt and tights with watercolor.

have started a little book holding ATC's and I'm so happy this silly little (different for me) bit is the first I see when I open the book!

Thanks so much for having a look! I hope you were inspired today!
