Creating Reflections using Vellum
To start I inked the Star Light Star Bright cling stamp with Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink. Then I spritzed the stamp with White Iridescent Spray a few times and used my MISTI to stamp it onto white cardstock. I repeated it one more time to get good coverage. Then I set it aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card. I LOVE that shimmery spray!
While that was drying I stamped the adorable lazy bear from Polar Greetings onto white cardstock and vellum with Versafine and heat-embossed him with clear embossing powder. Then I added a little coloring with cool grey Copic markers and a touch of R00 on his cheek! I die-cut the white cardstock bear with the coordinating die. Once the background panel was dry I trimmed it down to 4" by 5.25." Then I trimmed down the vellum strip, flipped it over to create a mirror image, scored the ends, and folded it around the background panel. I adhered the vellum flaps behind the background panel so I could hide the adhesive and then adhered the background panel to a white card base. I adhered my white cardstock bear with foam mounting tape and I love how it looks like he's reflected in the ice. Finally I stamped the sentiment from Polar Greetings on black cardstock, heat-embossed it with white embossing powder, and adhered it with foam mounting tape!
And that's it! Around here I'm hoping that winter will start bringing some snow soon and I think my polar bear agrees! ;)
