Hello crafty friends! Today I wanted to try something that I am usually not so good at – airy and lofty card design. To the end, I decided to do some coloring vellum to have a very muted color effect and not the intense colors you might used to from me. In addition, I wanted to remind you about the SALE over at Purple Onion Designs – 25% off any stamps, even already reduced products!
I started out by die-cutting my vellum panel with my Lil’ Inkers Mats, then stamped the images from Purple Onion Designs in Versamark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. You want to use vellum here that is rather sick and not super thin – it’s just easier to handle. I prefer WorldWin vellum as it is rather sturdy.
After heat embossing the images, I grabbed my Copics and colored on the back side of the vellum. That serves two purposes: first, you don’t touch the embossed lines, which can dissolve through the alcohol ink and you would also color them; second, by coloring on the back any irregularities are not visible from the front and the color gets muted.
To adhere the vellum to my card I used some clear foam tape and covered it up by placing sequins or enamel dots on top of them 🙂
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
