Magical using heat embossing, vellum and copics.

Hi everyone.
As some of you start your weekend,
 in Australia we are celebrating 'Mothers Day'
I'm here today to share this week's challenge as guest designer for this month over at
JUST US GIRLs
For this week's challenge, it's Trend Week #343 and we want you to use vellum.
 With so many people discovering the joy of using vellum and the latest Online Class 
that is also showing people more ways to use vellum it should be a great challenge.
So here's the card that I came up with for this challenge:



I've always enjoyed using vellum so today I have used a piece of pale orange vellum.
I then stamped with Versamark Ink the Hero Art background stamp. Although a background stamp it is smaller than the standard size background stamp. What you see here is not much smaller than the full design.


I embossed with gold embossing powder/ I love using embossing powder on vellum it always looks so crisp and elegant. But you need to remember to use your emboss buddy to wipe down the vellum so you don't end up with random spots all over your design. Heat your gun up a bit before using it and move your heathen around quite a bit to avoid burning the vellum.


I coloured on the back of the vellum with my orange and green copics but ended up also colouring on the right side. I know we are not meant to colour on heat embossed areas with copics so I was very careful to to keep the tip of the marker as away from the edges as possible.


I even came in with a little bright pink which just won't show up here because of the vibrancy of the orange vellum. I love how it turned out and used the sentiment 'magical' because I felt thats what it looked like.
All finished off with some bright pink gems.

So now you need to go over and check out the Just Us Girls Challenge blog to see what the rest of the talented ladies have come up with using vellum!  Hope you can play along with us!

Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
