    Vellum embossing with Pinkfresh Studio

    Hi friends Its reminder time for the May challenge at The Flower Challenge. The theme is vellum/acetate so an used a stitched rectangle die and die cut vellum.  Then I heat embossed this gorgeous stamp from Pinkfresh Studio with a gorgeous rose gold embossing powder by Simon Says Stamp.  When heated it has a beautiful copper shine to it. Once melted I coloured the back of the vellum with zig clean colour markers without water. The panel is so pretty it only needed to be added to a coloured card base and a simple sentiment also by Pinkfresh Studio be added. I hope you will join us, you have til…
