Quick Quotes Inking on vellum

Hello Quick Quotes readers!  Alicia with you today and I have been playing with some Powder Puff Chalking inks.  I was experimenting with some vellum and embossing folders.  I made a three cards for a wide variety of occasions. Vellum can be so versatile.  Don't forget to check out Quick Quotes wide variety of vellum quotes.  Here are some tips I discovered while playing:
  • Chalk on the back starting lightly, you can always add more to achieve your desired effect
  • Layering the vellum on a white or a light color will allow more true color to show

  • For more coverage use a brush or large sponge (blue water)
  • For more detail use a cotton swab or small sponge tip (fish)
