The Glow Vellum Technique is one that I had published in the May - June 2003 Canadian Stamper Magazine. This is a technique that utilizes wide double-sided tape, pearl ex (or similar product), and vellum to create a very shimmery, but subtle look.
Stampin' Supplies: Double-sided tape that is as wide as your stamp, stamp, palette or stazon ink, pearl ex or similar product, paint brush, stipple brush, light weight vellum (acetate also works for a different look).
Choose a few colors of Pearl Ex that will look nice together. (I used to use Moonglow, thus the name of the technique)
Dip your dry paintbrush into the pearl ex and tap the paint brush on your finger so the pearl ex will sprinkle onto your tape.
Continue adding pearl ex until your image is nicely covered.
Now you can peel the backing off to apply your image to your card. I like to use a white piece of card stock directly behind the glow vellum piece to make the pearl ex stand out more.
Please let me know if you decide to try this technique. I'd love to see your finished projects!
