Eat Cake and Be Merry
Welcome! We have such a fun week planned at the Penny Black Blog. Kathy Racoosin is here with a collection of cards that feature vellum in creative ways. She’ll be featuring techniques such as dry embossing on vellum, water coloring on vellum, reverse embossing, and embossing on parchment paper . I think you’ll love what she’s done! Here’s her first card of the week;
Kathy used StazOn Black Ink to stamp onto the vellum piece and embossed the underside of the vellum by stamping the Penny Black design with Versamark then tracing over the lines of the design with a stylus. Just a few small dots of glue hold the vellum strip in place on the card front.
SUPPLIES: Stamps – Delicate Pattern Background #40-047, Pinnacle #4168K (cake & bird), Trims #30-068, Letter Background #1999L, Eat Cake #30-066 (sentiment). Paper: Vellum, Mix & Match papers (colors taken from “Sticks & Stones” & “Coral Reef” ). Other: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, StazOn Ink, Copic markers, Tombow markers, white gel pen, distress ink, Versamark, clear embossing powder, embossing tool and paper piercer.
This week’s reader challenge is all about vellum! Use vellum in a Penny Black stamped project and upload it our Gallery using the tag, “vellum“. You have until the end of the week – Sunday night at Midnight, PST to upload your entry(ies) for a chance to win! A winner will be chosen to receive their choice of three Penny Black stamps or stamp sets. The winner will be announced here at the Penny Black Blog the following Tuesday. Good luck! We can’t wait to see what you can do with Penny Black stamps and vellum!
We’ll be back tomorrow with our challenge winner from last week’s Winter White challenge and a new vellum inspired card by Kathy!
