Working with a Large Stamp

Hello friends!
I don't know about you, but sometimes I get a bit intimidated about using a larger size stamp.
close-up (Lots of love)
 Today's card is a bit like that.

Previously, I made a card with the right bottom rose image (see below).

This time, I used the biggest one in the set. I decided to emboss the entire image on vellum and add colors.

This card looks very ornate and detailed. It looks more complicated than it really is. All I did was white-embossing and then I took out my very basic set of Zig markers and colored the images on the back of the vellum. That took about 5 minutes! The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and then cleared-embossed with the help of MISTI.
In order to let the image show through, I looked long and hard for a piece of pattern paper and I think this one from Basic Grey seemed to be a perfect fit.

I hope this inspired you to try using larger stamps in a different way.
Thanks for stopping by!

Perfect fit for Basic Grey is an understatement. Your card is gorgeous. I have done embossing on vellum but not as striking as yours. And, yes, large stamps are intimidating.

Perfect. Just plain perfect. Love the embossed and colored vellum but, to take it one step further and mount it on patterned just enhances and makes an already delicate stamp look more delicate.
