Well hello to you all on this lovely sunny bank holiday weekend. I hope you're enjoying yourselves.
I decided to try something different today - well different for me at least - and have a play with some vellum I've had for an absolute age. I bought 2 packs (1 plain & 1 coloured) at least 2 years ago and to be quite honest I had no idea what to do with them, so I decided it was time to play.
I started by printing a TPS digi image and that worked fine so I did a search on google about colouring and it was recommended to colour on the reverse, which I did using Promarkers. The lighter colours didn't show up very well so I used darker shades than I normally would. Then when I put the vellum over a white card base it looked awful so I went for the kraft base card but as it still looked a bit bare I dry embossed a few music notes and added an old button (coloured with Promarkers) tied round with some bakers twine. Finally I added a (poorly) hand written sentiment. So what do you think, and have you any more ideas on how to use vellum?
