Vellum Overlay

Greetings! I thought I'd show you a different kind of card that has a great look to it!

I used Vellum as an overlay on this card.

I got out my brayer and Memento Bamboo leaves ink and played around with some glossy card stock. After I got the look I wanted, I let it dry and then stamped the leaf sprigs randomly around the outside. Cut a piece of vellum the same size and stamp the same image in area's that you did not stamp on, on the base card. Color the image as you like and attach with brads.

For my sentiment panel, I used the same brayered back ground and layered it with some scalloped ovals.


Stamps - TAC


Ink - Palette Noir, Memento Bamboo leaves

Green gel glaze pen


Olive green and black card stock
