How to Color Vellum Cardstock

Lots of folks love the look of vellum and would like add some to their cards and scrapbook pages but feel like they just don't know how to use it. There is absolutely no reason you should be intimidated by vellum! Today I am focusing on one vellum technique that is fun and super easy. You can take ordinary white vellum cardstock and add any color you like using ink and a sponge dauber. I made flowers but it would be fun to use this technique to color other shapes and images.

You will need vellum card stock, a line stamp (as opposed to a solid stamp), versamark ink, white embossing powder, a heat tool, colored inks and sponge daubers to create flowers similar to the ones I have made. It is a great time saver if your stamp has a coordinating punch or framelit to cut the image out. If not, just cut it out by hand. These colored vellum flower are a great addition to cards or scrapbook pages and they are just beautiful!
