One of the things I really enjoy doing is heat embossing on vellum. When I took a background class from Taylored Expression last month this is one of the cards we made. We heat embossed on vellum using white embossing powder. Then, we color the flowers and leaves using Copic markers. I love the effect you get. Sometimes I'll just stamp the image on the vellum and once the ink is completely dry, you flip it over and color on the back of the vellum. The advantage to heat embossing your image is that you just color within the lines and don't have to worry about going outside the lines. I think it's a very pretty card. Don't you?
The heat embossing technique I used is from The Flower Challenge. For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
Thanks for stopping by the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
This is just beautiful. What a fabulous effect. I'm off to buy some vellum!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Alison! It is such a fun technique. What I like most about it, is the embossing keeps the colors from running together and messing up the whole design.Delete
This is so pretty! I've coloured on vellum before and the effect is really lovely I don't know why I don't do it more often! Thank you for playing along at the Flower Challenge this month. Ruth DT xxReplyDelete
Thanks, Ruth! As you said, I too, wonder why I don't color on vellum more often. It gives such a nice effect.Delete
