Autumn Vellum

This is my first post as a Hambo Bacon Bit.  I am so excited to work with these talented crafters and these great images!!

The current Hambo Hoedown Challenge is to use vellum on your project. Here is my card:
To get the pearly leaf outline (doesn't show up as pretty on the pic as IRL), I sprinkled embossing powder on the vellum as soon as it came out of the printer.  After heating the embossing powder and letting it cool, I dusted it with Perfect Pearls Pigment Powder (pearl).  I reheated it from the bottom (wrong side of the vellum). Once cool I removed the excess powder with a used drier sheet.  

The leaves were colored with Copic Markers on the wrong side of the vellum.

This is one of my favorite techniques to used with digital images!

If you have played along with the Hambo Hoedown Challenge, you might want to check out the changes HERE.

I sure hope you can play along with the Bacon Bits!
