The supplies you’ll need to do this technqiue are:

*Stamp set of choice. I’m using Summer Flowers.

*Versamark ink

*White embossing powder

*Heat gun

*Various colors of ink

*Q-tips

*Sheet of vellum paper

First, you will stamp your images onto your vellum paper and heat emboss them with white powder. After they have cooled choose your ink colors and color your image with a q-tip. Be careful to avoid covering the embossing. After you are done coloring lightly wipe over your image to remove any extra ink with a paper towel.

After your images are colored, trim them out and you are ready to make a project with them! Because of the transparent nature of vellum I recommend placing your images on a white background so your colors really pop. I tried placing other colors behind the colored vellum and I felt that they lost their effect. Because the vellum is colored to adhere them I used a quick drying liquid glue and foam adhesive. The coloring hides the adhesive so it’s much easier to attach the finished flowers to your project.
