It's Tuesday - time to try something new. Today's card features something I just recently learned about - Copic coloring on vellum. I actually saw a video with this technique a few days ago - but like usual, I can't remember who to give credit to. I'm sorry! I'm going to have to start paying more attention to those sorts of things.
It's really a pretty fun technique. First I stamped the image on vellum with Versamark ink and then heat embossed opaque white embossing powder on it. When it cooled (only a mere matter of seconds), I turned it over and colored on the back side with Copics. I did discover it needed to be brighter colors to show through, but that's probably because the image I chose had a lot of ink on it. A more subtle image would have probably been better.
I added strips of washi tape, partly because I like the look... but also because I needed some way to attach the vellum to the card. The blue that you see is coloring... the vellum was not colors.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
