Dahlias

Aloha, friends!

I'm in a vellum rut lol!

Using the same technique as yesterday's post, I stamped the image onto vellum. I used a heat tool to dry the dye ink (otherwise it can smear on smooth surfaces). I colored the image in from the back side using color pencils. For this card I used a stylus/embossing tool to create a circle around the flowers. Simply take a round die and hold it carefully over the image. Use the stylus softly to trace the circle inside of the die. Presto - you have a nice, quiet frame.

Use the next largest circle die to cut out the image. If you wish, cut a layer from another circle die to back the vellum with some color and adhere them together.

That was pretty much it. I hope you give coloring pencils onto vellum a try!
