Have you ever learned a new technique, find that you are really thrilled with how it turns out and then want to keep doing it? Well I just recently learned about using stamping, heat embossing and coloring with Copics on vellum. And I am just totally blown away by what a cool effect it gives!
For my project today I am using a background stamp from Hero Arts called Fresh Citrus Bold Print. I stamped this on vellum using Versafine in Onyx Black and then used Gina K. Fine Detail Clear Embossing Powder and set with my heat gun. I then also stamped out my sentiment, which is from Zest Wishes, another fabulous set from Hero Arts, on white cardstock and followed the same process of stamping and embossing. Next I turned over my vellum and used my Copics to color the back side of the vellum. I then used a circle foam shaker base from my favorite Circles Shaker Kit from Queen and Company, and created my shaker with the white cardstock, enclosing the sentiment within my shaker pouch. I then added my Sparkle Blend. For this I am using a fabulous new blend called Lemonade Sparkle Blend. This is such a fun and fabulous blend! You can get a pretty good look at what is in the blend in the pictures following. I then adhered everything together with Scor Tape and adhered a black frame on both the front panel and as a frame for the shaker. I really love how this turned out!
