Vellum Techniques #8

Regular weight vellum is thinner than card stock vellum allowing the colouring on the back of an image to be more vibrant.

I stamped the image on the front of regular vellum and let it dry. Then, I used a blender pen and inks on the wrong side to colour the image.

To hide the adhesive I cut the vellum 1 in. longer than the vanilla card stock and scored 1/2 in. from the top and bottom edges to make tab sections. Apply adhesive to the tabs and fold behind the card stock mat.

You can also make photo corners from a triangle of Designer Series Paper to hold vellum in place.
