As you can see that the vellum panel was dry-embossed. After running this Curving Leaves 3D Embossing folder through the die cut machine, I inked up the alcohol ink.

I inked up each section with various colors. For the extra fun factor, I trimmed and cut up the end part into tiny strips.

I then took out my Quilling Tool and curved up each piece in various curls.  It does take some effort to curl up the pieces, but I love the result and thought it was  "worth it"!

The sheen from the coloring looks absolutely amazing.

pamboe said...

Oh, Virginia! What you did with Curvy Leaves is just amazing. I love the colors.

This is a fantastic assortment of cards showing
us all your talents! My favourites are the leaves
although the bird is sweet!

conil said...

These embossing folders certainly sparked your creativity. Love how you enhanced each one. Vellum is wonderful embossed and yours looks amazing with alcohol inks. The curled edges of the fringe was just perfect for that lovely birthday card. Adore the way you colored those fabulous birds, as well. So soft and pretty. Last, but definitely NOT least is that Ixora card with the metallic colors...it's simply fabulous.

D.L. Walls said...

Wow, the colors are stunning and your creativity is wonderful. TFS your inspiration.

Denise Bryant said...

Wonderful cards! Love the fun way you used the fringe folder! The Ixora folder is another favorite.... beautiful!

mel h said...

Love how you colored the embossing folders. I love this technique.

Kimberly said...

These are beautiful -- but I need a little more instruction on the first card. You dry embossed vellum? Then you did something with ink. On the back side? How did you apply it? On the embossing folder or some other way?

Kraftsbyus4u said...

So soft and beautiful. I love them all! Certainly couldn't choose just one I want them all!
