Elegant Filagree Oval stamp- ohhh isn't it pretty? I stamped the image using Versamark onto Parchment Craft Vellum. I used Ranger Queen's Gold embossing powder- my favorite! I stamped just the top corner 4 more times and embossed for the corners of my card. I cut the 'extra's' out with the 4-split perforating tool.
The flowers are colored from the back using V12, V15 and YG03 Copic markers. I then stamped my Filagree Oval frame onto white cardstock, and cut it out just inside the first line of the frame- the white cut out is layered under the vellum to really accent the flower image in the center of the frame. I gently embossed in the centers of the gold frame edge using a soft grip stylus tool- the middle sized one- do you see the white embossed insides of the gold embossing on the frame?
This stamp has so much dimension- the vellum goes all of the way to the purple layer. I added a little touch of gold embossing to the edge of the vellum and under layer of Orchid using a brush of the vellum along the edge with Versamark and the Queen's Gold EP again. I used the score board and added some embossing (every 1/4 inch) for texture on the Orchid cardstock.
Sweet Stamps sells a started kit if you love the look of the etching/embossing and Parchment crafting. Here is a great video of Stacey in action showing the Parchment work- etching, embossing, grid rubbing, piercing and more.
