Did you all see Jennifer Maguire's video for her Vellum Overlay card? Well this is my take on that technique. My vellum wouldn't be sturdy enough to make a card base so I just let it be a cover.
First I stamped the Purple Onion Designs Heart Flower image twice using my Mini Misti in Antique Linen Distress ink. Then I used my Copics to color it in for a no-line technique. Here's a shot of what that looks like.
The vellum piece was laid on top and I used my old trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the images for my Versamark stamping. Then I added the white embossing powder. This vellum warps and shrinks a bit so I had the trim it slightly to fit the card base better. Then I decided to trim a bit off the left side to let the cardstock color be seen at it's full color.
I machine stitched at the top to hold the vellum down and used some hemp cord at the bottom to do the same.
flowers Y11, Y17, Y38, YR68, R14, R24, R29
stems YG03, YG06, YG17, YG67
It's a great technique and one I want to play with some more.
Have a blessed day!
