Friends of Speedy TV challenge (number 68) to create a project with vellum! I love vellum, but don't always think to use it.
I received a custom order from a co-worker to create a gift for one of her friends. She asked me to include some Gordon Lightfoot lyrics (modified Rainy Day People) along with a picture and some ducks. The whole project is a book card and I followed some directions given by Astrid Maclean. What you can see above is the left hand page of the open book. I printed the lyrics as my co-worker had them modified on vellum. They were taking forever to dry, so I used some clear embossing powder and heat embossed them. On the white background, I stamped my raindrops from the set called Rain Clouds. I layered two layers of vellum so that the lyrics could be read easily. Next I die cut my waves and layered them on. Then I stamped colored and cut out my duck from Oh Baby and popped it up on top of the waves. To deal with the issue of seeing adhesive through vellum, I cut out a frame and mounted it over top of the adhesive.
Just in case you are wondering what the rest of the book look like, here is the cover. I used the same two stamps sets for it.
I don't want you to forget that this week's Mark's Finest Papers challenge is all about vellum, since I have shown you the other two sections of my project. There will be a prize too! One luck winner will receive a Mark's Finest Papers stamp set. This week's set stamp is Zebra Fun. I hope you play along with us this week.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
