As you may know, Vellum has a waxy surface, which can make it a little tricky for coloring. Vellum often either won’t accept the color or the color just won’t dry (absorb). That makes Stampin’ Blends (alcohol markers) the perfect choice for use on Vellum cardstock.
Not only does it dry quickly, but it leaves a translucent effect to images. This is also a great technique if you just want colored vellum in general.
For this sample, I’ve used the Irresistible Blooms bundle, embossed in white on Cardstock Vellum. The thick lines and fairly open spaces on these images made them a good choice for this particular technique.
I just adore that dotted “wreath” die in the background (also in the Irresistible Blooms bundle). I’ve always been partial to wreaths anyway, and this one is just particularly versatile and nice.
I cut this one out in the returning Berry Burst color, one that I didn’t care for when it first came out some years back, but soon became a fast favorite. I’m so pleased to have it back in our selection of colors!
