Stamp Off Vellum Seasonal Layers Thinlits

Hey friends, it's another Stamp Off Challenge Friday.
Today Buffy, Susan and I challenged each other to
use vellum on our projects.  Vellum cardstock, on page 192,
is a great product, that often slides between paper packs
and gets forgotten.

I decided to use a technique with my vellum cardstock.
I colored the vellum with Stampin' Blends and then 
blended the colors with cotton balls soaked in alcohol.
Since the Stampin Blends are alcohol based, the alcohol
moves and blends the colors.  I cut out the vellum leaves
with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits on page 219.  I decided to
layer the full leaf with the cut out leaf, to emphasize 
the vellum and color contrasts on the card.

The sentiment, inked in Cajun Craze, comes from the 
Painted Harvest set on page 139.   You can see a bit of a
So Saffron in the background, which was created with the
"splotch" from Beautiful Blizzard on page 39 in the
Holiday Catalog.

I appreciate your visit, and strongly recommend that you click
on to Buffy and Susan's sites, to see their vellum samples.

Those leaves are gorgeous! I am going to have to try this technique.

Fall colours are my favourite - I love your leaves, Jackie. I've never tried this colouring technique with the alcohol - thanks for sharing :) said...

This is beautiful, Jackie! I have never blended with alcohol; thanks for the tips! Love the vellum leaves.
