Alcohol Inks

Today I am exploring 5 different ways to use vellum. As an elegant-style, cardmaker I find vellum to be something I use quite often. I don’t create cards often with the idea of using vellum, but often I use vellum to calm down backgrounds that are too busy for me. Belly Bands I love creating cards with different folds (hint hint for my next video!) but they often require a belly band or something to hold everything together. Vellum is a great material for this because it’s not distracting. Heat…
