Playing with vellum

 I made this card ( again with my not so new paperartsy stamps ) I stamped with clear embossing ink and white embossing powder onto vellum ( I bought LOADS when I first started scrap booking - is was a sparkle vellum with tiny bits of glitter trapped in it but you can't really see here) 

 I coloured the back of the cut out pieces with copic pens but any colouring pens would work or for a softer finish- chalks ( remember them ?)

 The background paper was printed using the gelliplate and an old wooden Indian print stamp . I added liquid pearl dots.

Its a bit difficult to see the sentiment - it's SO dark here today.
I die-cut it from a piece left over from playing with brusho paints.

The next card was inspired ( read copied) by the gorgeous card I found on pinterest.

No where near as lovely but I enjoyed making it.

This is the original and I believe it is also on the paperartsy blog .

Back soon.

  1. They're two absolutely beautiful cards make with those lovely stamps. I really like the white embossing and the gelli plate backgrounds are lovely Sue. Barbxx

  2. Gorgeous, what a fantastic effect - make perfect wall hangings too.

  3. Two stunners, Sue! I love them both, and I prefer the colours on yours. A great technique

  4. They are both beautiful, Sue. I've got some vellum on my Amazon wish list but am thinking I'm going to practice on some good quality tracing paper before I spend any money on the 'real', my sister would be proud of me if she read that last bit lol. xx
