I recently got some vellum, and I just love the look it brings to my cards. For this card, I started by blending some Distress Inks together for the background. I used Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Mermaid Lagoon. Then, I spritzed some Pearl Glimmer Mist over the inks to get them moving together and also for some shine.
The next step was to run my background through my Sizzix with an embossing folder. I first sprayed in some Chalkboard Glimmer Mist, which is similar to the regular Glimmer Mist but a little more opaque. Then, I embossed the background and dried it.
I then moved on to the vellum portion of the card. I die cut a piece of vellum with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Journaling Card die. I used some VersaMark ink to stamp the hippo and bird with, and then embossed them in white.
Then, I ran some Tombow correction tape down and stamped my sentiment over that. I then took a scissors and scratched a little of the correction tape off to give it a distressed look.
I then stamped the cute glasses and bowtie on the hippo with VersaFine Black Onyx ink. I used my Tombow Monotwin permanent marker to fill in areas that did not stamp very crisp.
After all that I adhered the vellum to the background using my Tombow Stamp Runner adhesive.
Thanks so much for checking out the card for today! If you are interested in some of the items I used I have included links below.
