Elementary school science projects were so much fun. This ATC features a stamp from Unity Stamps, resist embossing, and Distress Oxide galaxy colouring with Perfect Pearls.
These are not affiliate links just the products I use and where you can find them, too (if they're not retired).
I just got this adorable Unity stamp, Solar Elem. I love the elementary science project look of the planets. I decided to make this project on Kraft to carry on the elementary look.
I stamped the image with VersaMark.
I actually did this twice. On the first (left) I forgot to use the powder tool. Even after using a brush on it to wipe away stray embossing powder, it's a bit muddle in spots, such as the star all the way to the left. So I prepped another card with the powder tool and, without any additional wiping, the image is much clearer after it's embossed. Powdering first does make a big difference.
I used washi to mask off a thin margin and the writing line.
I used the blender tool to add a few bright Distress Oxide colours to the panel: Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, and Wild Honey. I heat set the colours.
I then used a blender to go over the whole panel with Distress Oxide Black Soot.
I then sprayed the panel with Perfect Pearls mixed with water: Confetti White. This gives the whole panel a soft sparkle and brings the under colours up subtly.
I heat set the panel again.
I used a wet wipe to wipe the ink off the embossing.
I used a waterbrush to add some of the colours to to the planets and stars. The colour is subtle but does make them stand out.
On the back, I stamped my maker's mark.
I removed the masking and took a picture with the colours used.
