Embossing on vellum



This is a card that I made at my monthly stamp club using an embossing technique on the backside of a stamped image on vellum. First we stamped the main image from the SAB "Merci" set onto a piece of vellum. Then we turned over the piece of vellum and used an embossing stylus to fill in the image. Just like you would do if you were coloring in the image, but here we used a stylus and made small circular motions to fill in the image. Interesting technique, however, it kind of makes the image "pop" up and a little difficult to adhere.

I hadn't quite figured out what to do with this particular patterned paper...you've done a wonderful job putting it together. Joan
