Step 1: Choose Your Digital Stamp
Start by selecting a digital stamp were using these free stamps from Two Red Robins (download them at the end of the post) Download and print it onto copy paper.
Carefully cut out the printed image to prepare it for the faux Vellum technique.
Step 2: Apply Clear Embossing Ink
Place a blending mat underneath your image and cover it with clear embossing ink. Ensure the entire image is saturated. Sprinkle clear embossing powder over the inked image. This not only creates a faux Vellum look but also strengthens the paper for attachment to your card.
Step 3: Heat Set the Powder
Use a heat tool to set the embossing powder. Lift the image in the air while heating to prevent the underside from remelting. Let it cool and dry. For an enhanced Vellum effect, repeat the clear embossing ink and powder application on the back of the image. Heat set and let it cool completely.
Step 4: Ink Blend Background
Choose an ink pad for your background colour and blend a patch behind the flowers, adding a subtle touch visible through the transparent faux Vellum. Create a bright white frame around the flowers to emphasize the transparency. This also makes it easier to raise the faux Vellum with foam tape.
Step 5: Adhere to Card Base
Use wet glue on the edges of the frame to adhere the faux Vellum to the flowers. This allows for easy attachment and raising with foam tape. Add gems for extra sparkle, a sentiment to convey your message, and draw a thin black line around the edge for a hand-drawn look.
