Woodware - Vellum

It's time for this week's challenge from Woodware. This week we are using vellum. I remember years ago how difficult it was to buy good patterned vellum. Then along came white Staz-on and then it became easy to stamp your own vellum. So this project kind of reflects the beauty of creating lovely patterned vellum to suit your theme.
I have stamped a square panel of vellum using a lovely scrolled medallion from Stampendous CRV268 and a Cotton White Staz-On ink pad.

The bride and groom is also a Stampendous image, an old one now but is still available and now on cling (V126 Happy Couple). For the brides veil, I stamped the image onto a post-it note and carefully cut out the veil to create a reverse mask. This was placed over the main stamped image and I stamped the medallion on top of the mask using Versamark. Once the mask was removed I covered with detail white embossing powder and embossed with my heat gun.

For the brides dress I stamped onto double sided adhesive film and cut out just the dress. Take off the back contact sheet and stick exactly on top of the main stamped image. After removing the top sheet I stuck down the pearls. The stick better before adding glitter! Then pour over a fine crystal glitter. This technique always gives you a very even layer of glitter, something I find hard to get when using a glue pen and glitter.
Rather than stick the vellum down I have stuck it under the bride and groom topper and used a couple of corners (peel-offs or die cut) the hold down a couple of corners.
So that's it for this week folks. For more ideas using vellum be sure to check out the Woodware blog this week.
