Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challege - Hot, Hot, Hot! - Stamp/Embossing on Vellum

Hello, Happy Makers!
The SOS challenge this week is full of fun!  Just make it hot, which means it could be spicy foods or weather-related.  You can use the word HOT if you so desire.  Be creative.  We can't wait to see!
  I used a Jennifer McGuire tutorial for this project.
The background was created using a stencil stamped with a pink solvent ink.  The ink was partially heat set and air dried. After the ink dried, I repositioned the stencil and applied VersaMark and then embossed with an opalescent embossing powder.  
 This view shows the beautiful colors in the background using the Opalescent Clear embossing powder.
It is difficult to photograph glitter but you can kinda-sorta see the pretty result achieved by applying Wink of Stella™ to the little puddles and foliage.

Materials used:
Hero Arts® Color Layering Flamingo
Hero Arts® Frame Cuts® Flamingo Die
ColorBox® Art Screens "Rooftop" Stencil
ColorBox® Opalescent Clear Embossing Powder
Inkadinkado Washable Ink - Hot Pink
Papertrey Ink LinenVellum Cardstock

Note: Use whatever supplies you have on hand.  With the exception of the die frame and stamps, I have had  the other materials for over ten years.   I was surprised the ink pads were still viable.

So glad you stopped by!  
Happy Making!

    1. Thanks, Lauren! You know, my Flamingo was just telling me the same thing!:D)

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous Chana! LOVE that sparkly background, and that flamingo is beautiful!

  3. Love this card, the glittery paper behind your super fabulous Flamingo, is just about perfect, love the grasses and the shine in the water.
    Awesome sentiment too.

  4. Oh my goodness... that background looks awesome in the pix so I'm sure in real life it is drool-worthy! Love the bright pink of the flamingo. I'll just say that that particular flamingo is the best flamingo stamp out there, IMHO. Excellent use of it! Love the way you cut it.
