Dry Emboss Vellum --- Winner Announced!
« on: January 31, 2020, 06:12:21 PM »
I love the look of embossed vellum and I saw this card where she used stamps to stamp her background and then dry embossed over her stamping to make the image appear on the other side.

You can either use one stamp over and over again stamped onto your vellum background, that is the whole size of your card or you can use a background stamp that you trace, just remember you don't want it to intricate. You can use other stamps on top I used the same stamp as I used for the background but you don't have to.

Here is a link to the tutorial I found.  http://mypapercreations.blogspot.com/2008/07/papertrey-blog-hop-vellum.html

She mentions going over it twice and I think that made it stand out really nice.  You will want a dark background to put it against also to make it stand out more, but that's up to you, just what I found to look nicer.

When posting use WF20 - Dry embossing.   Please no combining with other challenges.  I will send a goody package to a random drawn participant.

I will post my card in the morning.

What a neat way to use stamps! I see this tutorial is from 2008, but I am not 100% sure I have seen it before.  I will be having fun with this!

When I see an old tutorial like this, I always want to see if the person is still blogging.  I saw her latest post is from 2017, and by then she had switched to quilting.  That is fun too. 

Thank you for hosting Connie!

Thanks for hosting this challenge.  I have never tried this technique before.  Looking forward to diving in--after the hard decision of what stamp to use.

This is very pretty. I agree, the stamp choice is what may take the longest!

Connie, I love the look of embossed vellum.  Does the Versamark ink dry on vellum?

I worked hard on this, was using wrong style tools. Add I couldnít make it happen correctly.  Finally I dumped my drawer, found correct tool.  Then I went much better.  I kept thinking, it was cause I didnít have plain white vellum.  I have lots of the stuff with patterns on it, and pink and blue.
But it was the tool!

Are you guys wiping off the Versamark ink somehow or just leaving it? I think it will dry eventually but Iím not sure.

Heidi, I went over the inked side with my stylus and that probably wipes it off as you go. Then you are also flipping it over to the back side where you stamped so the ink will be under the piece instead of on top of the card.

I am glad for this challenge because I found so much vellum that I did not know I had! Lots of patterned vellum and a lot of different thicknesses. Now I will have to use them! LOL!

Thank you for the reply. I did just let the remaining Versamark dry, and it was shiny in places, but it didnít matter since it was on the back. 

I really liked this technique and would like to try it again.  I am actually low on vellum and had to use some yellow!  I would like to try the heavier weight and see if it is easier. I had to use a VERY light touch not to break through this vellum.

Thanks for the challenge!
