Sometime last week I had read there was a technique challenge to emboss on vellum and I've done it both ways heat or dry many times over the years but, it stuck in the back of my mind and then I read the sneak peek for VSN that Lee's challenge was to do white on white with color OK on your sentiment. and this is a combination of those but, I think the green on the leaves is too much green to squeak by for that but, I had fun doing this anways. This particular PSX stamp is not fun to color but, it does look cool embossed.
the Baby is heat embossed with SU white on some PTI vellum cardstock and then that was machine stitched to a piece of stardream opal and both of those are edged with pinking shears. the sizzix lace folder was used on a scrap of stardream opal and I cut that out by hand and added some opal liquid pearls to it. the flowers are from wild orchid crafts & prima, the lace is vintage. the Congrats is from Stampendous done on a scrap of kraft and is up on pop dots.
