Vellum Techniques: Vellum Overlay

Vellum is a translucent paper that creates a dreamy effect on paper crafts. I have never found a truly invisible adhesive, so I usually find a way to conceal the adhesive in my design.

Stampin' Up! carries regular vellum and a heavier card stock vellum. Both are useful for different effects. You can also find coloured and printed vellum.

Simply covering a stamped mat with vellum softens the image. On this sample I coloured the images with markers and stamped on card stock.

Next, I stamped a sentiment on vellum card stock and used a marker on the underside to highlight a key word. Try it with your journaling on a scrap book page.

The adhesive is hidden under the ribbon and the rhinestone brad helps hold the vellum down.
