I began by stamping my black base in Versamark with a stamp from Gorgeous Grunge - it is just a random "splatter" stamp. I added black embossing powder and heated it, then set it aside. I went to work on my white layer, adding layer upon layer of beautiful distress ink - to give that "night sky look" - I also gave my layer a "shot" of fine water mist in between layers, to add my "star" background. I have to say - I LOVE the Northern Lights - and this card reminds me so much of them!
I used my star pattern rubber stamp in Versamark and then lightly dusted it with the Pearl Mica powder - I added ALOT, as I wanted mega shimmer! Next, I used another star rubber stamp - this time heat embossing it with black powder - and adding more mica! The shine is incredible!
I finally layered it together and added my star cut from Silver Foil and wrapped in thread.
I used my silver elastic cord to bring it all together. There is a TON of shimmer and shine to this design - and the mica powder was the perfect touch!
