Hello My Inky Friends, let's play with some vellum today! I love vellum and have been using it for years & years, so thought it was high time to pull some out today. Let's see what happens!! **In case you have not heard Topflight is no longer participating in the affiliate program & my coupon code no longer works. Sorry about that. Luckily they have lots of good sales!
Absolutely love this piece, it just makes me happy!! All the layers, some die cuts, inky goodness. Oh what shall I do with it? To see photos of the Topflight Stamp products used go here. The full supply list with links is below.
This is what started this project, some Eileen Hull embossing powder & some printed vellum sheets. I really had no idea where I was going at this point. Sometimes that is all you need to get the creative juices flowing.The fabulous new On The Line stamps by Carabelle Studio were stamped using an embossing pad & the powder in Aqua Splash & White Wonder. The results were so dynamic more play was definitely needed.
Next up was Tracy Scott's powder in Mojito by WOW. This powder packs a punch of color & glitter, it has a very patina look to it. It is part of the Fiesta Trio.
Definitely needed a back ground for this to land on. Just for something different I pulled out some 49th & Market ephemera packs I got ages ago. This could be fun!
Pulled some pieces together for an audition.
Using other stamps from the On The Line set did some random stamping using Prism ink. Love the coverage of this ink!
I chose a focal image, also by Carabelle Studios called Pretty One. Love this girlie with wings. I wasn't sure if I was going to add wet color or not so Archival Ink was the way to go. Did you know there are 4 new Distress colors. Some of my favorites too I tried Black Soot, Vintage Photo & Ground Espresso.
I decided to add a bee tab from a previous post. It is from the postage stamp collection The Great Outdoors. To see other ways to use this stamp you can check out my blog post here. I made a bunch of so cool paperclips.
Took some Infusions & sprinkled them on wet watercolor paper. To pull up the excess walnut crystals simply press a piece of card stock on top of the wet product. Left side the watercolor, right is the 2nd print.
Next step was some die cutting using Tim Holtz die cuts by Sizzix, Crochet & Wild Flowers 1. Just love how delicate these die cuts are.The last step was adding some interest to the paper slide. It was distressed using watered down Roasted Coffee & then stamped with Thundercloud. The small images from the postage stamps were used like the script & postage marks. I love using my stamps in different ways! Those little details take this embellishment & make it look so much more dynamic.
All that was left was assembly & even that was fun! Don't you love that crochet colored with Lemoncello & Golden Sands? Again just nummy. Some metal touches were added as the layers just go & go. They are all Tim Holtz from his Ideology Line. The arrow has the added bonus of some wire & beads wrapped around it. Well that is it for today!! I hope you enjoyed the tour of my art tag & that you have the chance to follow along with your own supplies.
