Embossed Vellum Floral Heart

Hi all.  I decided to get going on the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge quicker, and  instead of being late to the party I should be reasonably early this time..lol.  The way the CAS Challenges work has been changed and the Mix Up, Watercolour and Stencil Challenges have been amalgamated into one and will rotate, so this month it is a Mixed Media theme which is embossed vellum plus stamping and at least one other mixed media technique.  Mine has alcohol inked vellum on which I have stamped and heat embossed, and then die cut mats and dry embossed on the background layer.


I put the AIs on my glass mat and added some blending solution and covered a piece of pink Vellum.  The colours were Watermelon, Butterscotch, Lemonade and Flamingo.  When dry I inked the Chocolate Baroque A Heart Full Of Love stamp with Versamark and then heat embossed using WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.  The embossing powder did take up a bit of the AI colour when I heated but I do quite like that.  I die cut the vellum with a stitched square die.

I then moved on to the background and cut the square with a Tonic Scalloped Edge Die and then dry embossed with an XCut Hearts and Kisses Embossing Folder extending it to cover the square white background.  I finished by putting it together and then stamped and again heat embossed with the Opaque Bright White EP on to a leftover piece of vellum cut into a fishtail banner shape and adhered it to the card.

Thank you for joining me here today and I hope you will visit again.

  2. Do you know Pat I have never tied alcohol inks onto vellum but I do like the effects you have created and how it tones down around the edges - guess what I might do today?

    The white embossed Baroque heart really does pop against those colours and the subtle embossed back panel compliments perfectly. Lovely as always to see you joining us, my thanks for sharing your lovely creation with us at Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations challenges.

  6. Me again Pat, playtime complete and really amazed that the vellum doesn't buckle. I added the AI's to a piece of acetate and dabbed into them, I guess much the same as you did. As I always say about crafting, it's a constant learning curve and there is always something new to discover.

  7. I am working myself up to using AI on Vellum to make a background Pat.I enlarged your pic and I like the way the embossing powder has soaked up a little of the AI - it gives a lovely effect. Great card as always. And it's always good to see you in the gallery at CAS challenges with your creations! x
