Hello, Hello, Hello!! I'm back after a 1 day hiatus, and I am super excited to share today's card with you! The Bloom Brigade is featuring a beautiful new stamp set called Glistening Paperwhites, and the minute I saw it, I knew it had to be Minc'd on Vellum!!!
Since these flowers are "Glistening Paperwhites", it stands to reason that they need to be white, right? And sparkly... ;) So I stamped my image onto copy paper and then copied it onto vellum with our copy machine that uses toner ink for the White Foil to adhere too. I then cut a piece of White Foil to size, laid it on the "tonered" image, and ran it through my Minc machine. I was in love!! The white on the vellum is so elegant without anything else done to it. But I didn't stop there. Oh no!! There's more...
Next, I burnished the back of the image to give it texture. I feel with it burnished, it's easier for the Copic markers to adhere and blend a bit to the Vellum. There is no scientific proof of this, and I'm, by no means, an expert. I just like the way they worked after the burnishing.
Lastly I added a touch (and I mean only a touch) of sparkle with my Quickie Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter by Stampin' Up!. I wanted the White Foil to be the focal point. Marcy's images have such fabulous detail, and Minc'ing with the Foil captures every little detail, no matter how minute. If you click on the image, it will zoom in and you can see the detail and sparkle even better.
Now, glue shows through Vellum, so I just used some metal clips to hold my Minc'd Vellum piece in place and sewed around the image, and added a sage green base to the back.
I added a sentiment, as well as one of the individual Paperwhites to the inside (embossed with white detailed embossing powder), and included a pair of white lines (that I hand drew with my White Signo Pigmented ink pen), as well as a couple of Rhinestones to finish it off.
That's it for today's project my friends!! Tomorrow is THE DAY!!! All 5 new Power Poppy stamp sets will be available for purchase. Now tell me...can you choose just one? I didn't think so. Each one is so unique and charming. I have one more project to share with you tomorrow, so please drop by again.
