You guys know I don't normally use extra bold background color but this orange woodgrain is so awesome and I had this fantastic photo that I took last week of Figaro by my Halloween tree. Also I wanted to use the stamped image "Things that go bump in the night" for my title because it suited this photo so well. That ornament that fig is staring at doesn't have the velvet ribbon on top anymore. I found it on the floor the next morning with the top chewed off. LOL! I decided to stamp on vellum and also to print my journaling on the vellum. I tested both of these things and found that the best way to stamp on vellum is to use heat embossing powder and this black sparkly one is awesome. But first I printed the journaling onto the vellum and you can buy printable vellum but its not even close to the type of opaque vellum that I wanted. I found that if I used the printer settings on "draft", the ink didn't bleed as much and it dries nicely.
*also... just a side note.. I LOVE my new camera :) It's a new Canon SL1 - smallest and lightest but so totally awesome and the touch screen is my fave part and I didn't even care if it had that feature - makes it amazing to focus specifically and changes lighting. LOVE it.
