Mod Squad Challenge - Color Your Vellum

Dear Ones~
This week it's my turn to host the challenge over at The Mod Squad. I have chosen a technique I call Color Your Vellum. You are to use an image colored on vellum as your focal.

Gina K. has been in the stamping industry since 1998 and started Gina K. Designs in 2007. As the business grew, Gina asked her husband Tom to leave his position as an attorney to join her in the business. Together they built StampTV, their online video website featuring broadcast quality paper crafting videos, galleries, social network for paper crafters and more! Gina now has over 200,000 followers over her various social media networks and video sites from all around the world. Gina’s goal is to continue to offer top quality signature products through her online store Gina K. Designs along with informative and creative crafting videos.
Be sure to check out StampTV for a ton of great videos and techniques. They also have weekly challenges. Shop Gina K Designs.


A $20 gift certificate to the Gina K Designs store!!!!!

Here is my card:
I took a panel of vellum, heat embossed it with Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder, and then colored it on the backside with my Copics. I love the way it looks with the glimmering embossing powder. This is such a beautiful stamp. The panel was attached to a piece of white card stock and layered up to create the card.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Cherry Red Card Stock
GKD Black Onyx Card Stock
GKD White Card Stock
PTI Vellum Card Stock
GKD You Have My Heart Stamp
GKD Cottage Garden Stamp for Greeting
SU Ribbon
Stash Pearls
