Got the Vellum out again

This card is one started on Friday, its a second response to The Stamp Man Challenge.  It has been years since using vellum this way.    The tulip is a Rubber Stampede image, stamped onto the vellum in white ink.    Coloured from behind with Water Soluble Wax Pastels not that water was used here it does not make pretty results with vellum.

Dug out some old Parchment craft Magazines and adapted one of the designs to complete the piece.    Using pergamano tools to perforate part of the design and remove some of the vellum.   A white card backing the image helps push the image forward.

I really aught to do more with my old Parchment craft tools and patterns!


  1. Very pretty, but I am NOT starting on vellum again, my hand aches just thinking about it!! Hugs, Valerie

  2. That's gorgeous Zoe! Your vellum skills are fantastic. very elegant

  3. That looks terrific Zoe. I never know what to do with vellum at all and this has given me some great ideas-thank you

  6. This is so very pretty Zoe, I'm like Esther and don't normally go for anything vellum, but I will make this the exception, as it is so lovely. Julia xxx

  7. It's such a shame parchment craft is not fashionable at the moment, it's so beautiful isn't it. I love how you've used the vellum, Zoe. It's funny until recently my vellum has been very unloved but once you start playing with it again there's so much you can do, it's quickly become a favourite with me again.
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Stampman this time.
    Hugs Lisax
