This time I added a gradient to the base and used holographic polishes for the stamping. I also used a slightly different stamping design from the same plate as before.
Polishes and Tools:
Color Club Angel Kiss, Eternal Beauty, ‘Til The Record Stops and Feathered Hair Out To There
MoYou London Sci Fi 05
I started with a base of Raindrops, which is fairly sheer, so I needed two coats. I sponged a gradient over the top, using more Raindrops and two polishes from the Color Club Poptastic 2015 collection. I dotted the three polishes randomly over the sponge with slightly more grey than the pastel neons. It took about two or three coats of sponging to get the effect I wanted.
To stamp the gradient of purple and green I added the polishes on one side of the image and scraped across at a couple of slightly different angles. I find this blends the colours the best.
It’s subtle but I really like it. I think the holo will show up more in sunlight. I wish I’d taken a picture of the gradient before stamping, it looked like a grey pastel galaxy. I will have to do it again but add stars next time!
I was originally inspired by Fleury Rose‘s design last year. I wanted to update it and add in some holographic elements which are in her design, but not my first attempt last year. I think I will come back to this again and again – it’s so elusive and pretty!
