Is it just me or is 2016 flying by? How could it possibly be May, already? Well, the calendar tells me that it is May 1st, so there must be a new challenge at House of Cards
This month, the challenge is a clear papers challenge
Here's my card
I have to admit - I love using gold heat embossing on vellum and adding colour with copics on the reverse side. I absolutely fell in love with this card created by Virginia Lu
I used the Tall Flowers cling stamp by Hero Arts, with versamark ink and gold embossing powder. I used a "heavy weight" vellum as I find that it handles the heat embossing pretty well. I do try to heat up the heat tool before applying it to the vellum. I tend to move the heat tool quite a bit to try to avoid "warping" of the vellum. I coloured the reverse side of the vellum with copics, added a nest of gold thread and a gold embossed sentiment from Simon Says STAMPS Many Thanks stamp set.
