Have you tried the new shadowpress embossing folders by Tim Holtz? They are lots of fun! I have them all (so far) and have used them with watercolor paper, kraft core core'dinations and now transparency film.
This is the new Layered Bee Sizzix die and coordinating Texture Fade out of white vellum. More distress inks were used to color the bee. I used Glossy Accents to attach him to the transparency film.
The 'explore' didn't show up quite as well as I wanted so I v-e-r-y c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y ran a small emery board across the embossed portions and tried not to scratch the rest of the film. I smudged Black Soot Distress Ink into the abraded bits and wiped it off with a clean cloth. Now the letters pop with just a hint of gray to them to enhance the shadow effect. Yay!
And here's the envelope that coordinates with the card.
I took more transparency film and cut out another bee. I now have a positive and negative stencil. Using Black Soot Distress Ink I inked up the bee. Removed the stencil and put the bee image on top with temporary tape so I could ink up the Honeycomb Stencil over it. Love the look! Since distress inks aren't waterproof I smeared MicroGlaze over the inks and 'set them' with a paper towel to remove the excess.
Now to go play with the Layered Butterfly and Layered Dragonfly!
