Vellum Flower and Markers


Last time I bought some vellum sheets and have not had a chance to play with much.  I always had in mind to try and stamp on the vellum and heat embossing with powder.  So this is what I have created with my Happy Birthday card.

Here is my on image for detail on lighter shade of color on the vellum image.

I stamped the pretty flower (stamplorations - simple flowers and sentiments) in versamark water mark ink onto a sheet of vellum and heat embossed with black (zing - black opaque) powder.  I then colored the flower with marks (mont marte - fine tip markers) on the back side of the image, giving a subtle color look to the flower.

I then fussy cut the flower and used pop dot on the flower part and glued the bottom to a white cardstock, to give the flower a lift and to see the lighter shade of color, because of the vellum being see through.   I stamped the sentiment, from the same set as the flower in (versafine) onyx black ink under the flower. Also adding three bling jewels to jazz up the card.

Gave the panel a black frame and used pop up dots to adhere the panel to the card front,  The center panel I stuck plasters tape and sponged with distress ink dusty concord and using water brush went over it to give water effect and then peeled of the tape. I was trying to achieve that the flower was sitting on a fence type background.  I ran out of white card stock so I adhered the whole design onto green card.

I like how the vellum gives that see through look when you stamp on it and when adding color from behind gives a subtle look to the image.  Hard to capture that with camera.

Anyways hope you like my card.
