Scrapbook How To: Stamp on Vellum

Nearly transparent and more delicate than cardstock or patterned paper, vellum brings unique qualities to your scrapbooking. Becky Olsen stamped on the front side of a piece of vellum. She then turned the vellum over and painted behind the stamped images. Turning the vellum back over reveals a cool illustrated look on the stamped images as you can see on her Sweet Outdoors layout from Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks: Paper Palooza.
