I didn't stamp on vellum but used a shimmery vellum butterfly and a thin strip of vellum underneath the sentiment. I started my card last week with my Thursday night stamping friends (I am so lucky to have them) and finished it at home because I couldn't decide which sentiment to use. (Of course it ended up being a birthday card because those are the ones I use most.) Dora B. showed us a technique where you stamp an image in a light color and then outline it with a glitter gel pen. Love that shimmery effect.
Stamps: Stampin' Up (retired), unknown (sentiment)
Punch: McGill (butterfly)
Other: Faber Castell (colored pencils)
Check out the card Dora B. over at the 7 Cardologists made with the same technique. She used a different stamp set and watercolors. It's always fun to see how different our cards end up being!
Your visits and comments always make me happy!
Have a wonderful week,
