Hello Junkies, 

I've got a fun technique for you to try.  Have you ever heard of Parchment Crafting (Pergamano)?  It's a parchment paper art which came from the Netherlands.  You can find lots of interesting examples on Pinterest, so I won't link any here.

The proper way to do this is with parchment paper, but not having it, I decided to try it on heatable vellum paper because it's heavier than regular vellum and not easily torn.  I really like the results and will be doing more of it, but thought I'd share this attempt using "Happy Winter Wishes" stamp set from the new January 2018 release with you.  

After stamping the bunny with VersaMark ink and heat embossing it with white ep, on the vellum, I turned the piece over, face down, on a foam board I use for piercing.  Taking a stylus I used for dry embossing, I rolled it around the interior of the bunny's body.  Once that was done I decided I would color the scarf and coat with Copic markers (again on the reverse side).  When I was satisfied with the look, I fussy cut the bunny out of the vellum and mounted it on a pale blue cs panel I had already prepared with inked "hills" and the sentiment.  A touch of Copic markers for shadow/grounding, a few sequins and this card was done.
