Today's Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS was Who's De-Boss. . .to deboss on vellum. I have NEVER used this technique before. You can't really tell so much in the picture, but this technique gives the flowers a very neat 3D quality. It's very cool! I used the Thankful Blossoms set from Verve Visual and masked and stamped the flowers on vellum cardstock. Then I flipped the vellum over and used a stylus and mouse pad to "deboss" the flowers. After that, I flipped the vellum back over and used my blender pen to color in the flowers using VersaMagic inks. I then mounted the vellum on top of some Scribble Scrabble patterned paper. To finish it off, I put some glitter in the center of the flowers, faux stitched a border and tied on some rust organdy ribbon. Thanks for stopping by today! It's supposed to reach 60 degrees here today. . .unbelievable! I hope they're right because that would be VERY nice! :) SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Thankful Blossoms (Verve Visual); Paper- Felicity Collection (Scribble Scrabble), Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, vellum (SU); Ink- Noir (Palette), Red Brick, Mango Madness (VersaMagic); Accessories- paper piercer, Chocolate Chip marker, blender pen, rust organdy ribbon (Darice), Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU), stylus.
