Welcome to the Stamp It Summer – Patriotic Blog Hop

I decided I would try my hand at the blending technique using the Stampin Blend alcohol based markers and 91% alcohol on vellum. I’ve seen several posts that people can not find this high of percentage. You can find the 91% alcohol at Target or try a local pharmacy.

Using Real Red and Night of Navy in the darks, I scribbled blocked sections leaving empty or white space. Obviously there is no white blend so you have to create the illusion. I can be somewhat challenged with techniques so it took a few variations of using two colors to create red, white and blue while being happy with it and not making grape 😂😂 We are our own worst critics at times aren’t we!

It was never my intention to emboss the word friend. I poured the loose embossing powder off towards the bottom instead of off to the side. Surprisingly, my ink was still wet enough to pick up the embossing powder, so I went with it. I placed upon the Pacific Blue Card base.

As a result, my future attempt will be to make my vellum layer smaller and add a Basic Black layer to help the vellum layer pop.
