Rubber Stamping on Vellum

Hello stampers!   I'm so glad you stopped by today, because I want to share a technique known as Pergamano, or parchment craft.  So, what is Pergamano.  Wikipedia says:
Parchment Craft, also known as Pergamano, is the art of embellishing and decorating parchment paper (or vellum paper) through the use of techniques such as: embossing, perforating, stippling, cutting and coloring.
When I first began learning the fine art of Pergamano, each image was first traced onto vellum using a dip ink pen and white ink before the embossing began.  This was, as you might imagine, very tedious, to say the least.  Of course, I sometimes love tedious, but don't always have the luxury of that much time.  So, I am going to show you a shortcut using rubber stamps.  The effect is elegant and unique!
