Painted Embossed Vellum Alcohol Markers Technique

My friend Elishia and I decided to make a card using the same stamp set and putting videos up with them.  Her channel is new and it’s WanderingDreamer555 and here’s the link to it.

This stamp set is from Stampendous and is called Hummingbird.
I chose to use the larger hummingbird and the large flower for this card.  I used a piece of vellum that was 5″ wide and about 8 1/2″ long.  I stamped the images in my MISTI with Distress Ink embossing ink and used Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder on it.  After I heat set it, I colored the back with alcohol markers from Spectrum Noir.  Use dark colors as light colors won’t show up as you do your coloring on the reverse of the vellum. I used some Bic Mark It and Sharpie markers and found that the pearlized markers showed through the vellum much darker than the Spectrum Noirs.
I used 110 lb Recollections white card stock 10″ wide x 7″ tall, scored at 5″.  I scored by vellum at 7″ and then glued it to the inside of my card and put glue under different parts of the vellum.  I cut a piece of card stock 1 1/2″ x 5″ and glued it over the vellum on the inside of the card.
