Coloring On Vellum How To!

Happy New Year Sweet Friends!  It's Charlene here with you today. When I was on an excursion at Michaels recently, I saw these massive beautiful flowers made out of fabric.  Swoon...they were gorgeous!  Being a crafter on a budget, I went to my stash and see if I could re-create it....

Coloring on vellum is one of the techniques that I learned a while back. The finished product looks amazing and has that airy look to it.  AND it's super easy to do!

  1. Can I just say that the Elegant Flowers stamp set is beyond amazing? Yep, love this set! I stamped multiple images onto vellum using Versamark ink then heat embossed with white powder.  
  2. Now it's time to color.  Ready?  All you need are inks of your choice and q-tips.  Start at the base of the flower and color upwards.  Add more color until you are happy with the shading. Fussy cut the flowers and assemble.  That's pretty much it!

Here's the finish product:
I assembled the flowers to make a giant focal point.  The layers add so much dimension.  I'm happy with how this turned out, it looks like the flower that I saw at the store, but in vellum. :)

Here's the rest of the card:
I added a sentiment from Yummy Love stamp set to finish off the card.  That's another amazing set!

We would love for you to share your creations using SSS stamps.  You can head on over to Flicker or to FB.
