It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you ever used paper to disguise something? I know we often use embellishments to disguise our goofs when leaving a smudge or fingerprint on our paper. But how about using paper to cover?
In this case I am talking about vellum. When a piece of Designer Series Paper is too bright then use a piece of vellum as an overlay. When a piece is too dark use a piece of vellum as an overlay. When you want accents on a card that aren’t the main focus use vellum. Just remember if you use a stylus to have a light touch. And if you use a heat tool to emboss move it away an additional inch or so and keep it moving more. Vellum scorches and warps much easier.
It’s Technique Tuesday! Have you ever created a card or project and not known what to put to finish it? Did you already glue it together and wish you had stamped? Then use embellishments!
In this case I had already glued the pocket on and knew that this needed something. I thought of stamping first but knew I really couldn’t with the folds. Instead I reached for the Frosted Flower Embellishments.
Embellishments are not just to pretty things up. Sometimes they are used to hide a fingerprint, smudge, or even a glue dot. In yesterday’s class a crafter used a glitter enamel dot to hide the bump from a glue dot. Don’t think your card is ruined until you have tried everything.
With inky fingers,
