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.

I used to use this vellum technique a lot; but I used parchment paper to work on. The finished product looks a lot like mine used to. Anyway, I love this and you did a great job on the embossing! Well done!

Heidi--I really like your giraffe on Vellum. I like to use these type of stamps and methods for our older folks at the Home.

Oh Heidi, this is so pretty and once I get back into stamping, I'll have to case your idea. Had surgery on July 1st for my broken leg that happened at Christmas (it's a long story)so when I am allowed to walk again, I'll be back in my stamp room!!!
