Papertrey Ink Make it Monday, Coloring Vellum


I was so excited to see Betsy share her technique with us this week and couldn't wait for my new release goodies to arrive...so I pulled out one of my summertime favorites, Strawberry Patch and Strawberry Patch sentiments sets.  I die cut vellum for the leaves, flowers, and berries using my dies.  Then I used detail white embossing powder (from Michael's) to heat emboss the stamped images on my  die cuts.  I had to use tweezers and be extra careful as the stamp went right up to the edge of the die cut pieces.  I then used spring moss and simply chartreuse with a q-tip to apply on the vellum for the leaves and berry sorbet and raspberry fizz for shading on the strawberries.  For the little flowers I used fresh snow and a little bit of Hero Arts Butter Bar.  I stamped the main focal point image from Strawberry Patch with Dark Chocolate ink on a rustic white base and layered the vellum over it.  I used a Y21 Copic to color little Recollection pearls for the centers of my little flowers and used two strips of paper to ground the image.  My sentiment is from the Strawberry Patch sentiments and is stamped in Dark Chocolate and Berry Sorbet.  My patterned papers are from an older 6 x 6 paper pad from My Minds Eye called "Stella and Rose-Gertie".  Thanks for checking my card out!  I had so much fun experimenting with this technique.
