Pootles Advent Countdown 2017 #18 Colouring Vellum Ideas

ONLINE EXTRAVAGANZA – Week Long Sale November 20th to November 26th. Flash Sale coming on November 27th

Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe we are at #18 already in the Advent Countdown? Nope, nor can I…. but I am loving it, and today’s project sample was made quite a few weeks back, but only recently turned into a tutorial. By which time, Blends had joined our line up, so I decided to have a go at colouring the vellum on camera.

Ironically, I filmed this before we went to our OnStage corporate event, where they shared this very same technique. Clearly I think along the same lines as Head Office does!!!

So while my original card, the paler one, was coloured using sponges and ink, the brighter one uses Blends. Both I think are equally lovely, and just go to show that you can use either or both to create a lovely card.

Since my video, I have tested the adhesive sheets again, but allowed the ink to dry more. It does work! hurrah….!

Have a great day everyone, I’m back in Solihull again this weekend, training some of my team and guiding them to promote to senior titles. I love it!

  3. Beautiful! This is the best card I’ve seen for Christmas this season! Thank you!

  4. What if you stuck the image to the adhesive sheet, punched it out, then peeled the backing off? Would that leave the stick on the back of the vellum? Just a thought…Love your style!
