First I stamped the image on vellum and heat embossed with gold powder. Then I coloured the underside with copics, which was a bit tricky in that they don't fix permanently, so the ink keeps getting moved around. I added some glitter to the Babe's clothes with a two way glue pen.
Then I applied glossy accents over the front of the image, working in between the sections of embossing. It looks really cool in real life - like a stained glass window.
Unfortunately the glossy accents really warped the vellum!!! I tried to straighten it by putting it between old heavy textbooks (yeah - stamping instead of studying at night! woo hoo!!) for a couple of days, but it only worked a little.
And then I couldn't attach the vellum using glue of any sort (because it was warped), so I had to use brads which I'm not crazy about.
And THEN I was so worried that all that work would be ruined by a misaligned greeting (...because the vellum is warped), that I can't bring myself to do it. I want to put it in the upper right corner. So it might just stay like this.
Next time, I'll do a double sided sheet of vellum (wrapping to the back) so that I can just tie a ribbon through the spine and not have to glue it, and I'll stamp the greeting early on.
