Ok, this was my first try at the Alcohol Markers on Vellum Technique…and if you have seen some on Pinterest…it is lacking the distinct veining in it. Oh, well, it’s different, and I like it especially with the Stampin’ UP! Sale-a-bration 2021 Summer Shadow Dies available August 3rd:)
I have to say that we did this card at my Team Meeting, and I demonstrated the technique of coloring with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers on vellum and spritzing with 90% Rubbing Alcohol. We then moved the ink around with a heat gun. It dries really quickly. You can see how the vellum really pops when it is mounted on white cardstock.
My girls’ vellum all had veining in them…the pic above shows more veining than mine! But…I really wanted to show you the Summer Shadows Dies that will be available during the second round of Stampin’ UP! Sale-a-bration 2021. Not only do you get the stand alone solid flowers with the open flowers I used on the card,
but also the dies to cut out the images in the Stampin’ UP! Shaded Summer stamp set in the Annual Catalog. I remembered thinking it would be nice to have dies with that set!
I stamped an image from the stamp set on the inside and colored it in with Marvelous Magenta, Granny Apple, and Daffodil Delight Blends. Notice the three little groups of three dots around the flowers? I had a stray dot after stamping the image so I fixed it by adding some more! I was so pleased with that fix! I used to do that all the time.
I plan on playing around with the Alcohol Markers with Vellum again to get more of a marbling design- but really, it will turn out different every time!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
