Back to using stamps: #150

Not a very clear picture because the vellum panel won’t lay flat.  For this one I used embossing buddy all over the vellum and then stamped with white juicy ink.  Color Box.  Threw some embossing powder on it and heat set it.  Then I flipped the vellum over and used SU markers to color on the back side of the vellum.  I used a tiny print back ground stamp in grey on the card stock and then adhered the vellum panel onto it.  Added the soft grey organdy bow and went right over the sentiment with it for a very soft look.

  1. And one of the reasons I think heat embossing is my most hated technique (from my previous comment) is that it buckles the paper!!! And it especially buckles vellum. I used to love doing this technique though and having big pretty ribbon like you have here on the card. So how come I used to do that but say I hate heat embossing?! Because I'm a woman and I'm allowed to be contradictory. So there! Love your card and love how you can see shading in the flowers through the vellum.

  2. Gorgeous!!!! Beautiful shading on your flowers! Fab embossing on vellum!
