I started off by prepping my vellum with a powder tool so that stray embossing powder wouldn't stick to the vellum. Then I stamped the Altenew Persian Motifs on the vellum in a random pattern using Versamark ink. I started with the larger stamps and then filled in empty spaces with the smaller stamps. After I had filled the panel I heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder.
Then the fun part! I turned the vellum over and colored the flowers in with blue and teal copic markers! I used a gold metallic paint pen for the leaves but unfortunately they ended up looking more green than I had intended when I turned the vellum over. So I took a Pentel gold gel pen and colored over the leaves on top of the vellum and it added the color and shimmer I was looking for!
Next I die-cut the word 'hello' from the Half-Tone Hello die set with dark blue cardstock and then stamped the sentiment from Half-Tone Hello stamp set onto the die-cut with Versamark ink and heat-embossed it with the same gold embossing powder. I attached the sentiment to the vellum with foam mounting tape.
I knew I didn't want adhesive to be visible through the vellum so I decided to "cheat" and added a frame of dark blue cardstock to the front of the vellum with my ATG gun. Then I turned the vellum over and added adhesive over the areas that would be hidden by the frame. Finally, I adhered the vellum panel to a white cardstock base and then added a sprinkling of blue and gold sequins.
Here's the card from a slightly different angle...the gold embossing really pops in this photo!
I really enjoyed the different look I achieved from coloring on vellum and I look forward to trying it with other stamp sets! Thanks so much for visiting and see you next week! :)
