Tiger Vellum Birthday Wishes!

I recently learned a new technique with vellum paper that I am having so much fun with! My buddy Barb shared with us how easy it is to stamp on a vellum piece with an ink that does not smear (I used Archival Black Ink by Ranger) and then from the back, "color" in all the white parts with a round tipped stylus. The vellum you "color" will pop up and turn white and this is even more beautiful in real life! I used  one of my favorite old TAC stamps for the technique and framed him in a "polaroid" embossed frame. I layered the whole piece on a two sided cardstock for a nice masculine card.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Challenges 4 Everybody.

Stamping smiles, Karen
