We have reached the half way point in 'The Flower Challenge' so
its time to post a reminder and to share another card with
another style for additional ideas.
Here I have used a pre-made background. They come in sets of gold or silver foiled and are from Papertrey. I haven't used them half as much as I should have and plan to get a good bit of use out of them for Christmas this year. This background has the gold dots and gold foiled circle.
I have added a 'Happy birthday' sentiment in gold mirror card.
I stamped and gold embossed one of my original Altenew Flower stamps on vellum. I love these flowers, they are so elegant. And I love colouring with zigs on vellum, it just picks up the colours so beautifully.
I have used a mixed of purples and pinks and just love the colours I have achieved.
My green was achieved with a yellow and green zig blended in together.
I am so happy with how this turned out. Zigs work perfectly on the front of the vellum within the embossed image. If any beads on the embossing use your lightest colour to pull it off. Use little or no water as the vellum will distort. I constantly look for lightest colour to pull colour out or remove and lighten an image.
I hope this has given you some ideas and its really worth trying as its just so easy on vellum. I cut the image out with the corresponding die as I finally got them.
Thank you so much for coming to have a look and if you go here
you can see what the others in the Design Team have made. Also there
is a link there to The Flower Challenge if you would like to join us
with your own card.
Here is our banner to use in our challenge.
We would love it if you care to display it on your blogs too
Also this one if you prefer to just add to your blogs
Thank you so much for coming to have a look.
I think the mantra for crafting is 'never, never
throw away anything' My flower was stamped and
embossed on one of many snippets of
vellum in my stash.
