Vellum Dimension Project of the Week at Repeat Impressions!
It's Magic Monday, and I am so excited to be sharing my Project of the Week with you here and on The House That Stamps Built blog! I am calling the technique I am showing: Vellum Dimension Technique. It is easy to do and looks even more beautiful in real life! I stamped Repeat Impression's Tiger stamp on vellum with an ink that does not smear on vellum. You could use Stazon, but my favorite is Archival Ink by Ranger. Turn the image over, and from the back, "color" in the white areas with a stylus tool on a thicker pad (see below).
As you color in the vellum from the back, the image turns white and is raised for great dimension. Here is a photo from the side that shows that dimension.
One of the problems we all have with vellum is how to attach it to our cards without the adhesive showing. On these cards, I chose to frame all the velum images and was able to easily attach without the adhesive showing. The tiger was framed with a circle cut out with a Nestabilities die, and then framed again with a black scalloped circle created with two Nestabilities dies. I added a lovely Repeat Impressions sentiment stamped on the rust paper and attached all to a black card base.
I chose a beautiful Eagle stamp for the second card I am sharing with this technique today. I again stamped the Eagle on vellum, "colored" in the white parts from the back with a stylus and thick pad and framed the vellum piece with a "polaroid" frame. I added some fancy yarn and a few brads to complete the card.
I hope you enjoyed the Vellum Dimension Technique and my sample cards today as much as I enjoyed sharing them with you!
I am entering the first card in the Anything Goes challenges at 2 Sisters and Inkspirational.
