The Reunions of Tomorrow

For this stunning sentiment, I wanted to keep the layout very simple . . .

  . . . a watercolor wash in three misty colors, sparkly white embossed vellum, and a few crystal stars comprised most of the artwork.  Although many have had trouble with vellum warping when it's embossed, I'm happy to report that Stampin' Up's brand of vellum gave me no trouble at all. 

I do follow the prevailing advice, however:  let the heat gun warm up for about 10 seconds before aiming at the embossing powder.  This will keep the vellum's contact with the high heat to a minimum and reduce the chances of warping.
