Home-made Lace Sympathy

Godelieve over on her blog has done some awesome work with making 'vellum lace'.  I had tried some earlier HERE.  This time I decided to try adding some to a sympathy card.  (It is along the bottom edge of the blue panel - it appears hard to see as it is white on white.  Click image to make it bigger)

On this card, I also combined white, vanilla, and Ocean Tides (Papertrey Ink).  Usually, if I use one neutral on a card I generally don't add a second.  However, I tried it an I really like it! 

The vines were stamped on a vanilla cardstock and heat embossed with clear powder.  Then the Ocean Tides ink was sponged over top.  The lace was made by heat embossing white powder onto vellum and cutting out the strip of images. 

Stamps: With Sympathy, Round and Round (exclusive), Demask Designs (Papertrey Ink).

Have a great day today!  Thanks for the visit, I certainly do appreciate it!!

Donelda, your cards looks so elegant. I´ve bought vellum for this kind of technique but i don´t use yet..

Very pretty, and very suitable.

Beautiful card. Love the elegance.

Love the vellum. And I used to do it the hard way, with embossing tools and piercing tools..this is surely a faster way to make vellum lace..but don't have any stamps that look like lace..hmm time to improvise!!

What a fun technique -- it really does looks like 3-D lace! Awesome effect; thanks for sharing a new technique!!
