Day 2 Growing in Unity – 2020

Welcome back to day 2 of Growing in Unity featuring stamps from Unity Stamp Company  Today I work with Glow-in-the-Dark embossing powder. I purchased it a year ago from Brutus Monroe, but finally used it for this week.  

This cute card was made by stamping the image and sentiment from Boo-lieve on white cardstock .with Versafine black ink.  I then filled in the ghost with a Ranger Perfect Medium pen and sprinkled on the Glow-in-the-Dark embossing powder, then used my heat gun to set it.  I used Distress Ink in Pumice Stone applied with a blending brush to tone down the white after masking off the ghost.  The patterned paper went well with the image.

The bottom two cards used July 2018 SMAK kit called Look Up and Get Lost. Since these were stamped on black cardstock (the moons) and a darker patterned paper (the stars) I learned to stamp with a white pigment ink and put the Glow-in-the-dark embossing powder on top of that. That made it show up much better than just using Versamark with the embossing powder. I ended up fussy cutting the moons, so that I could arrange them the way I wanted on a slimline card.

Below are pictures of the way they look in the dark. The pictures don’t show that well, because it is hard to take pictures with the lights off, lol. They look pretty cool in real life.

Make sure to comment and I will be drawing two random winners for an awesome grab bag of Unity Stamps.  Unity is so generous to offer this prize each week.  Join me tomorrow for more. – Denise
