Vellum is fun to use on your cards. It can make a card look and feel very elegant, which is why it is often used in wedding announcements. Plus you can use it whenever to add some pizzazz or color to your card. Here is some designer vellum that I colored.
Pineapple Punch A-2
Whisper White 5-1/2 x 3, 2 x 3
Graceful Glass Designer Series Vellum 5-1/2 x 3
Archival Basic Black
Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies
Since the vellum is transparent, the colors will change depending on what you have underneath it. So, I cut a panel of Whisper White to place my vellum. I was then able to get the actual colors to appear on the vellum.
I did start with an alcohol marker, deep blue on top left of window, but it began to go all over the place. I was able to clean it up with a paper towel. So, I used a few blends and regular markers from Stampin' Up!
I also applied the color on the front of the vellum. I think I will try coloring on the back of the vellum and see if there is any difference. I do not think there will be any difference, since the vellum is transparent.
Another idea is to not color the vellum and allow the color of the cardstock to show through.
Always, give the vellum a bit of time to dry, no matter what medium you use on it, and always have some fun. Let me know what you have done in the comments below.
I adhered the vellum with liquid adhesive and the sentiment was stamped, punched, sponged and adhered with dimensionals.
