Try Something New on Vellum

It's Tuesday - time to try something new. Today's card features something I just recently learned about - Copic coloring on vellum. I actually saw a video with this technique a few days ago - but like usual, I can't remember who to give credit to. I'm sorry! I'm going to have to start paying more attention to those sorts of things.

It's really a pretty fun technique. First I stamped the image on vellum with Versamark ink and then heat embossed opaque white embossing powder on it. When it cooled (only a mere matter of seconds), I turned it over and colored on the back side with Copics. I did discover it needed to be brighter colors to show through, but that's probably because the image I chose had a lot of ink on it. A more subtle image would have probably been better.

I added strips of washi tape, partly because I like the look... but also because I needed some way to attach the vellum to the card. The blue that you see is coloring... the vellum was not colors.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Vellum! Oh my....the vellum I have is probably so old it would crack! LOL It is fun to work with though. You did a great job working with it. I like how it makes the illustration lines pop out.

this is gorgeous Jeanette - I don't have copics so won't be trying this particular technique, but i do love it when I see it done by others.
