Coloring Vellum with Blending Brushes ~ Super Elegant Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Blendering Brushes were added to the Stampin’ UP! tool chest at the beginning of this year and I have loved using them! This is the third technique I have shared featuring them and this time I am using the Square Vellum Doilies to show how you can make them any color to match your project.

I am also featuring the ‘soon to be retired’ Shimmer Paint, using it to produce a rich sheen to a piece of Very Vanilla Card as a background to the vellum……. and there is a video showing you how to do both techniques.!!

  • Base Card: 11 x 4 1/4 Pear Pizzazz Card ~ scored @ 5 12/
  • Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Very Vanilla Card
  • Layer 2: 2 1/4 x 1 Pear Pizzazz Card
  • Layer 3: 2 1/8 x 7/8 Very Vanilla Card
  • Ink Color: Pear Pizzazz

I used the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder after I pearlized my card layer. My greeting comes from the Garden Wishes Stamp set and I have embellished with a few Pearl Basic Jewels and a tiny bow from the Fine Art Ribbon. (scroll down for a link to my video on how I tie my bows)

Now kick back and see how all this comes together……………….

Check out how I tie my bows
