I hope holiday preparations are going your way.
This is my latest card I would like to share.
I thought the perfect image to use with this technique was We Three Kings (40-347). On a piece of vellum paper, I heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder. Using my Koi Watercolor Field Sketch Set as well as my Pearlescent Paint Set, I carefully painted the image with regal colors.
Once dry, I worked on the rest of the card. I trimmed the vellum and adhered it to a matching size kraft card panel. The one thing about this technique was the vellum warped. I tried to flatten the vellum as much as I could and used clear tape on all sides of the paper. To be honest, it still looked warped, but I really liked the way it turned out, that I went forward with my card creation.
I wanted my image to stand out and used matched green cardstock to frame the image. I also added strips of gold foil paper to act as a border between the vellum and the green CS. The completed panel was adhered to a matching red cardbase. To finish, I used “Rejoice” die from the set Exultations (51-060) cut from gold foil paper. I die cut this twice and adhered together. I placed the cut at the bottom right side of my panel. I didn’t want to fuss with the dot from the “i” and decided to used a gold pearl pen instead.
Even with all that vellum warpness, I am very pleased how the card turned out.
