Vellum Challenge

Today's Jacksonbelle challenge is to use vellum.

Hmmmm. I had to think about this one for a little while. Then I decided to stamp my image (from Stampavie) directly on the vellum. By coloring with markers on the back of the stamped image, then you get this nice soft look on the front. And you don't have to worry about your ink smearing, because you're coloring on the back side. I also dry embossed all of her fur trim to make it nice and white, as well as dimensional. Cute, huh? I also edged the vellum in glitter and added brads to my Ooh La La paper.

I hope you find some time to play along with the Jbelle Rockstars this week and incorporate some vellum into one of your projects. It really can give you lots of cool, unexpected effects. Check out the rest of the team:

OH! I have missed so much! Sorry I haven't been by much, but I stopped in today, and this just knocked my socks off! Love the image on vellum over the green CS! Beautiful! And pure genius to emboss the "fur"...I am definitely filing that idea for a future CASE!
