OCC Clear & Sheer Day 1

I am taking the new OCC class Clear & Sheer and am just now getting started. I was busy and haven't been able to get to the lessons.  Although this is Day 3 of the lessons, I am just getting to  Day 1 and it was was all about Attaching Vellum.  Now I LOVE the look of vellum and sometimes it is a challenge getting it on your card!

Using the Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquets: Ranunculus, I stamped in Versamark and then white heat embossed it on watercolor paper.  I used distress inks to watercolor the image.  I cut vellum into a flag shape and heat embossed the sentiment, from Wplus9 Strictly Sentiments (love this stamp set, such a pretty font) in Ranger Platinum embossing powder.  I folded the banner around the card front, attached it to the back and then added some sequins to the front.  I applied Ranger Multi Matte medium to the underside of the sequins on the vellum and attached it to the card front.   The vellum adds so much to a card and doesn't cover up what you want to showcase. 

Thanks, see you soon!  (probably as soon as I get the other lessons completed!)

Supplies used: Ranger Distress Inks: Twisted Ciron, Mowed Laen, Wilted Viole and Shaded Lilac. SSS Stitched Borders die
