Finally Technique Time :)

Well I finally have gotten around to posting the technique for this week its only what 5 days late. But don't fear I already have next weeks technique ready to go. So with out any further rambling we will get right to the technique.
You will need the following items:
3 contrasting inkpad colors
white cardstock
Step 1: Take lightest color of ink and drag across vellum. Continue this step for all 3 colors, working from lightest to darkest.
Once you have done above your vellum should look like this.
Step 2: Take white cardstock (you want cardstock a little smaller then vellum) and place on your work station. Take you inked vellum and lay the ink side down on your white cardstock and rub your vellum all over, so the ink will transfer to white cardstock. Once you are done rubbing, lift velum off of cardstock. You should get an effect like the pic.
Step 3: Now you can do 2 things, you can either use just the vellum or the white cardstock for your card or you can attach the vellum on top of the white cardstock to get a cool look. My finished card was done with the vellum on top of the white cardstock. When you do it that way you can see the color that you rubbed onto the white cardstock come thru the vellum. Its kind of hard to see in the pic, but trust me it gives cool look.
Hope you all enjoyed. Have a wonderful weekend. Until my next rambling :)
