Hi there! Today I have rainbow paisleys, vellum and stenciling on the brain. I used products from the latest Stamp of Approval Perfect Reason collection (still available), Catherine Pooler inks, Clarity Stencil Brushes, and vellum. I also am giving away one highly sought after MISTI Creative Corners!
I’ve also got a video to go along with the card. You can watch the video right here or head on over to my youtube channel and watch it in HD by clicking HERE! If you aren’t already a subscriber to my video channel, I’d love to have you! Simply click HERE and subscribe.
I used the diagonal edge from the MISTI Creative Corners (sold out right now but more are on the way) to create the rainbow stenciled background on the circle die cut. My intention wasn’t to cut the panel down into a circle or add water droplets but I went where my mood was taking me, lol.
Stamping on vellum can be tricky! This vellum circle panel wasn’t the first panel I created, lol! The other went into the garbage. When you stamp on vellum the ink will remain wet for quite some time. You have to be very careful not to smear it (which is what I did with my first vellum circle). I used one of the magnets that came with the MISTI as my center piece for the circle so I knew where to stamp the paisleys.
Catherine Pooler inks stay wet longer than traditional dye inks so you can heat emboss with them. After I stamped the paisley in rainbow colors, I sprinkled on some clear embossing powder and heat set. Another tip: Keep your heat gun moving when you heat emboss on vellum so your paper doesn’t burn or warp – yup another lesson I learned the hard way. – 🙂
