Colored Vellum

Colored Vellum

Did you know you can color on vellum?
Here's an easy idea to make a translucent window with some color.
I took a piece of Heat Resistant Vellum and embossed the mushrooms from the Mushroom Forest Set onto the vellum with Gilded Embossing Powder.  I set up the panel in my Misti to fill the entire panel with the little mushroom stamps (moving and stamping several times).  Once heat set, I flipped over the panel and colored the mushrooms with alcohol markers on the underside.  I used red, orange and brown alcohol markers.  
For the actual card, I made a top folding A2 sized card, cut off one inch from the bottom of the top panel, and then another 2 inches for the window opening.  I used adhesive tape to attach the vellum to either side of the card, re-assembling the A2 card. I added a thin strip of red cardstock to give the window a finished look.  You may also want to add a second layer of cardstock to the inside of the card (the top part) to make it a bit sturdier.
I'd love to see your take on this technique.
