Vellum is an unusual paper often used as an overlay for cards - think white on white and wedding. But there are other ways you can use it - lots in fact. We'll be exploring some of the ways in our upcoming classes.
Anyway, here's a couple of baby cards I made using a technique called Revitalised Vellum.
I've used my ink pads in a direct to paper technique to kind of "wipe" them all over the vellum. It takes a bit of time to dry, especially if your inks are super juicy. You can speed up the process with a heat tool but I don't like to use mine because the vellum curls up and it's a bit of a pest to flatten out.
Tip: Ensure you put adhesive right to the edge otherwise the vellum will curl off the card - ok if that's the look you're after!
