ETA: adding this after the fact to the Tuesday Trigger, as it uses the same circle graph pattern
It's been quite awhile since I've been able to join Papertrey's Make It Monday. Since seeing Nichole play with Perfect Pearls a few weeks ago I've been dying to dig those out of my drawer and play too.
I am so excited about how this star chart sympathy card turned out! I was curios how the iridescent powder and embossing powder would work together. It's easier to see in person, but the brighter stars are embossed with silver embossing powder, and the lighter stars have the iridescent powder. The difference serves to add some dimension and perspective to star chart. See the Milky Way on the left? It's stray embossing powder that I was just about to brush away before I thought about the Milky Way. So my happy accident stays, and is my favorite part of the card.
The star chart was made by inking up the Hero Arts Circle Graph Mask with VersaMark and using it like a stamp instead of a mask. Then brush the iridescent powder over it. You do have to think about the order of things before stamping though. The parts you want to be embossed need to be done first, then the parts to get the powder should be done last.
I don't own Perfect Pearls, but I have a set of Pearl Ex which you can see above.
The two star stamps are from Papertrey's Banner Builder set (had forgotten about these little treasures!) and the sentiment is from their With Sympathy set. A nice match I think. Since the sentiment is stamped on a shiny silver paper, I had to use black embossing powder to get a dark, sharp color.
Thanks for looking!
