Today's Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge is to use vellum!
I don't really know if I've ever used vellum on a card, if I have it was so long ago I forgot but this card was quite fun to make!
At 1st I just stared at the piece of vellum and thought I would have to use brads or maybe I should emboss it with my Cuttlebug...but then I had the idea (which I am sure is not an original one, lol!!) to stamp on it and try to color on it, so I did and then I decided to stamp and color on a piece of white cardstock and see if I could see the color through the vellum and so on and so forth and this is what I came up with. Stamping for me, sometimes, is a process...a long and unnecessarily drawn out one ;)
Hope you like what I made:)
The stamps I used are from Inkadinkado.
I did figure out something exciting on this vellum adventure! The top edges of the vellum needed to be held down somehow and brads wouldn't work so I put a tiny dot of Mono-Multi in the corner just to see if it would hold and not show through and it worked!! So I put a little on all of the corners and some at the bottom under the words. It dried totally clear and you can't see it at all!
