Let Your Dreams Take Flight

I have a quick card for you today featuring Prickley Pear stamps and a fun Vellum Embossing Technique!   

I stamped the FF0020 Eagle image in Stazon ink onto some ivory vellum and let it dry.  Once dry, flip the image over on a foam pad.  Rub and embossing stylus gently over the image *coloring* it.  As you rub your stylus, the vellum will turn white as the fibers start to stretch.  You are adding height to your image.  When you have it the way you like it, then color the beak on the backside of the image with a Copic Marker.  I then adhered the embossed vellum image to So Saffron cardstock with tiny glue dots hidden beneath my stamping. 

Papers are from Teresa Collins' Everyday Moments Collection.  C0007 Dreams Take Flight is stamped and popped up on foam over banner tails.
