The Ton June Challenge - Color Palette Challenge

Here is The Ton June Challenge - Color Palette Challenge, below is the challenge photo:




And here is the card I made to attend this challenge:



I used two techniques on this card. The first technique is Perfect Pearl lifting using the Wave stamp set. I stamped the first layer of wave with Versamark ink pad on blue cardstock. Then I brushed Perfect Pearl powders on top of the image. I stamped the second layer of wave with Versamark ink on top of the first layer, so the second layer will lift some of first layer's Perfect Pearl powder. I stamped the third layer with navy blue ink pad to finish the shimmery wave. For the pyrotechnics, I used the second technique which is the Transfer Gel with foil paper. I stamped the pyrotechnics with a thin layer of Transfer Gel. Let it dry completely. Then, I put different colors of foil paper on top of each pyrotechnic and went through the laminator. Lifting the foil paper and the dimensional sparkling pyrotechnics are what you will get. Finish the card by silver embossing "You are so awesome" on the background. Below is another look of the card:



Different angle can see different colors of the foiled pyrotechnics, very cool! Below is a closer look of the card:



Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampin' Up, MFT
Stamps: The Ton Stamps
Ink Pads: Versamark, Stampin' Up
