Fly Me to the Stars!

When I thought of using this special paper which shows stamped images as a holograph I felt the Stampendous Hot Rocketz set was perfect. I guess after watching the northern lights for years I think of traveling in outer space with the movement of wonderful colors of light. Don't you love it when you like the combination of stamps and paper?

The special paper for this card has a black coating over top of holograph paper. The holograph shines through mostly in silver and gold colors unfortunately althought that is what I saw in the camera the photo came out with green images...oh well perhaps you will get to try it yourself and see the sparkle. The process is simple. Stamp with Encore metallic ink, heatset, then rubbed off the black coating and ink allowing the stamped images to shine through. This is a fun different effect. Another sparkling card is a good thing in my mind!

I hope you leave me comment if you know the name of this paper...thanks! I'm off to post this link for another Stampendous Challenge.
