As I get ready for Monday’s Terrific Techniques: Fun with Washi class, I was looking over a card I made recently using the Best of Butterflies stamp set. (You know, because it was one of my few samples right now that uses washi)
I was playing with Vellum and thought it would be really pretty to create a softly colored butterfly image. Its super easy to do too!
All you have to do is:
- Stamp your image on Vellum using Stazon Ink
- Flip over your Vellum paper (so inked side is down) and start coloring using markers.
I recommend coloring with your darker color first because the first color you ink will be the top layer you see when you flip over the stamped image.
- Cut out your image
- Adhere to your card base using a glue dot behind part of your image that is solid black.
And TA-DA! You have a totally cool looking butterfly!
