I saw Jennifer McGuire water color on vellum using both Wink of Stella and the newer Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. I had to give it a try and enter ONE more card into the JUGS Challenge which asks for vellum! that is the "trend for this week" and right on, because the last Online class was all about vellum and acetate on cards! (A friend gifted the class to me, sweet, right?)
This is the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set that was white embossed and then colored with red and clear Wink of Stella. After adding a bit of the red, I pulled it out with the clear to help give it some dimension and coloration (is that the right word?) Other than clear WOS, I have gold and a silver, however I picked up a red the other day to give this technique a try. I used gold for the leaves because I didn't have green! And it is sad that we can't capture the sparkle on camera because it really does shine! I embossed the sentiment in gold to tie in with the gold leaves. And, I did color on the right side, not the back of the image!
I think this card is very elegant looking!
EDITED TO ADD: Loll reminded me that I could also enter this card in the CAS Mix-UP Challenge, so I am linking this card to that challenge also...you need to emboss on your card, stamp and your choice!
Thanks for stopping by and having a look!
Heart Hugs, friends!
