Vellum Technique

Today's featured card is using a direct ink pad to vellum technique.  Not sure what the actual technique would be called, but it looks cool anyway.  I did this technique exactly a year ago and called it Ink Smooshing to Vellum. 

Here is how to do the technique. By spreading the ink directly from the pad to vellum in different directions, the look is created. These two cards were done with peach parfait, tangerine tango and believe it or not, cherry cobbler.  Both were done exactly the same, but look entirely different by adding the background color.  The first (which turns the cherry cobbler into rich razzleberry), the vellum is backed on peach parfait, then mounted onto the rich razzleberry.  The second is mounted directly onto the cajun craze card.

Email me if you are interested in doing this and/or other techniques in a class.  I would love to schedule one for you and your friends.
