I love 3L's Scrapbook Adhesives runner so much that I just had to try their vellum tape. The first time I used this and this showed through my vellum, I thought that I just happened to be using a super-transparent vellum. But then it kept showing through with all sorts of vellums. Then I started hearing other people talk about how this adhesive showed under vellum with them. So it's official - this stuff is NOT transparent under vellum, it totally shows through. Plus this does not provide the smoothest rolling application either, it's a bit of a struggle to lay this stuff down. I'm using mine up as regular adhesive now, NOT under vellum. Don't buy this!
I too am disappointed with this runner...like another reviewer says you have to force the tape out and it is showing up white through my vellum. I could've easily have gotten this effect with glue.
Don't understand why it was not clear! wouldn't buy it again with hopes to find something better!
I have no idea why reviewers have complained about this product. I've used it on clear vellum. Yes, it shows when you first apply, but once you lay it down on card stock, it disappears! I love this adhesive!
