Sandy(stampingwriter) was chosen by Trish to be the Queen this week. Sandy has a lovely gallery and provided inspiration for me for a graduation card. I chose this CARD with its stars and circle elements....I left off the mummy cat and broom. : )
I used the wax paper resist technique from BarbieP and used the idea Jennifer(mother's daughter) gave me in her comments yesterday to use Kraft CS. I did add sponged inks, but her idea gave me a lovely base. Thanks, Jennifer.
PearlX gold powder was brushed on to give the effect of a nebula after my sponging was done, but before I stamped and embossed the golden stars.
Congratulations, Sandy........enjoy your special week.

What a beautifully creative graduation card! Miles beyond the cap and gown ideas I would have come up with. Love all the different techniques, (thanks for documenting them) and that amazing stamp. Definitely a card to cherish. TFS

So COOL!!! I LOVE a card that keeps me scanning every inch because it is so interesting! LOVE your background and the "graduation" (pun intended) of colors! Your embossed image of the map of the stars is fantastic! I agree with all, it does look wonderful on the kraft! Super creative Graduation card and beautiful too!!!

I love the gold and white ep's, Sallie, they create boldness to your images! And your sponging from dark to light (and those pretty colors) look amazing! Perfect sentiment for this creation~Oh.....and if this going to an aspiring astronaut-well, B-I-N-G-O!!!
Make the most of today, because tomorrow holds no guarantees!
