Vellum Techniques #3

The translucent quality of vellum can be used to create a shadow by stamping on the card stock mat behind the vellum with a different stamp than the image on the front of the vellum, then mounting the mats together. Click on the image for a closer look.

To create the white accent lines on the image I loosely traced on the back of the vellum with the small end of an embossing stylus. The stylus will glide easily if you rub waxed paper over the vellum. When the image is coloured on the back with markers the lines stay white. Don't be too neat if you want the look of watercolour.

On the die cut vellum piece I repeated the background stamp on the card with White Craft ink.

The adhesive is hidden under the ribbons and the punched sentiment.
