Embossing folder ideas round 3 embossing with velum

Use the finger daubers to rub the ink on the back under the flowers.
I used a glue pen to apply the glue inside the flower petals and then added the fine glitter.

    I played with embossing velum and found you need a weight of velum that is not too thin or too thick.Too thin cuts through and cracks.Too thick you can't see your color through if you color on the back side.I did find just the right weigh pearl finish velum that I had in my stash and I love it!
    I dug through my embossing folders and found a fun Easter Egg one that was so fun to work with. I embossed it with some of my pearl velum.I then used my finger daubers to rub ink on the backside where the eggs were. You can see through easily as to where to but your ink.This was a fast and fun card for Easter. I attached it to the light ivory card after I tied a bow from a sheer organdy ribbon for a bit of interest on the card.

I used the fantastix to color in the smaller holly leaves and berry's.They work great for small area's.

I hope you learned a tip or two on embossing velum and what to do after you do.This was a fun one for me to play with.Thanks for stopping in and learning with me as I prepare for my demo on ways to used embossing folders. I will be entering this in the background challenge at Mod Squad challenge blog.
