Coloring on Vellum with Hero Arts


I love white stamping on Vellum, so elegant, and the gorgeous subtle effect you get when inking on vellum is so beautiful. Here I took a Hero Arts stamp white stamped on Vellum, and coloring it in with Hero Arts dye inks.
It is, After all, Color it In month here at a2z scrapbooking!

Wishing you the Best

I started by stamping bunches of flowers onto a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Vellum
as well as stamping my butterfly onto a scrap piece of vellum to cut out later.

I used little fine tipped make up applicators to pick up ink from assorted dye ink pads and color
in the flowers, on the back of the vellum. I had actually found these in the clearance section of my local
department store, but any “spongy” fine tip applicator would do.

After the flowers, I also colored two matching butterflies to layer together for dimension.

I made a frame for the car by cutting a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of white cardstock and using a
rectangle die to cut out the center. I also die cut a fishtail flag for my sentiment,
which was stamping in Hero Arts Black dye ink.

I adhere the vellum to the frame, and then used small foam square to adhere the
whole thing to the card base to leave a little space between the vellum and the card stock behind.
