Vellum Techniques #7

I used an outline stamp and dry embossed inside the image to create a solid area of opaque white.

After stamping the vellum, let the ink dry, then turn it over onto a mat and rub the back with waxed paper. Since vellum is translucent, you don't need a light table. Start embossing with the small end of your stylus and go over the area again with the large end. Be gentle and patient or you'll pierce the vellum. (If you like, you can colour the image on the right side)

Instead of adhesive, I sewed the vellum and ribbon to the card stock mat.

I glued card stock to the back of the clear heart button. After trimming, sand the edges and pierce the holes.
