|I have a quick share today with my final DAY FIVE of my vellum feature. If you are wondering what I am talking about you can catch up on DAY ONE here, Day Two, Day Three & Day Four.|
|Before I emboss on vellum I like to use this to reduce static and get a more crisp image. Stamp your flower in a random pattern on the vellum with Versa Mark ink. If you are stamping in a well lit area you will be able to see where you are stamping since Versa Mark is clear. Use a fine white embossing powder like Zing(OPAQUE White Embossing Powder) to emboss your images.|
(When embossing on the vellum move your heat tool more than normal around the area so the paper doesn't burn. )Stamp an extra flower on vellum. A painter's palette is a nice way to apply your water color markers. I scribble the color on the palette and pick the color up with a Dove Blender to apply the color on the back of the embossing. The dove blender becomes the paint brush. Continue to reload the color and apply to your image. The effect looks like stained glass to me. Here is a card I designed with more of this technique and more color. Let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy your day! Hugs, Kathy
P.S. I will be announcing the winners soon for my blog candy and the vellum flowers.
