Top Tip Tuesday Challenge - Use an Action Image

Hi Crafters,
I'm here today to share my DT card for Top Tip Tuesday. Now you can interpret the theme how you wish, an 'action image' could mean an image doing an activity like skating, cycling, running or it could be as I have chosen to interpret it as an action card. Here is my Penny Slider Card using 'Bunny on a Rocket from our sponsor this time which is Zlatoena's Designs...

Thick card base and top layer for support
Bunny on a Rocket Digital image - Zlatoena's Designs
Two Pennies
Star Stamps - Lavinia Stamps
Sentiment - Clearly Besotted Stamps
Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concorde
Two tone cardstock and various circle dies.
This was such a fun card to make and I loved colouring the little bunny image. I started by stamping random stars over the plain top card layer with clear embossing ink and heat embossed them. Than I inked the sky with Distress Inks, the embossed stars resist the ink and stay white and glossy. Then I spritzed with a water mister to create an outer space look. The planet was created using two different toned pieces of cardstock cut in to circles and using smaller circle dies I randomly cut out the craters and popped it up on foam tape. My image was coloured using my Pro/flexmarkers and attached to one penny with a foam circle. Another foam circle was sandwiched between that and the other penny making the slider mechanism. The tricky part was cutting the curved slot in the top layer of card, I made myself a template first as I didn't want to mess it up at this stage. Once the slot was made then the penny sandwich was inserted and the Rocket now slides and spins along the slot looking like Bunny is whizzing around the planet. That just left the sentiment and I had the perfect one from Clearly Besotted Stamps.
Hope you like my little Penny Slider Card, they are quite easy to make and some of the other DT members have made action cards too so please take a look and get some great ideas. You could win yourself two digital images from our sponsor this time if you are the lucky winner. I  look forward to seeing all your entries over the next two weeks.

I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.
