Giraffe on Vellum
I have to give credit to Barbara Marschall for this card today. These were all her techniques and I loved them so much I did one very similar to her original creation. I am using the Giraffe which was stamped on Vellum with Marvy Matchable Ink. Then I flipped the vellum over and used a large stylus with a thick mat and rubbed it over the open areas of the image. This causes the image to pop as well as whiten the vellum. For the background, I used masking tape which I tore into pieces and layered them in a hodge podge. Then I rubbed black ink over the tape and rubbed in with a kleenex. Then I used some Gathered Twigs Distress ink over that and rubbed it in again. I adhered the vellum down with glue dots, then added the brown pearls with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen over the dots and let them dry. I add some of the olive leaves that were cut out using a Cheery Lynn die.
