Vellum Flower

Hi! Here's a card inspired by this week's Muse challenge! It took a few attempts, as I tried to use punched flowers (I hate cutting out!), but they were too small and looked weird. So I stamped a larger flower on vellum and embossed it with glittery gold & white embossing powder. I made the background with ink dusters over a dotty stencil and masked circle, then stamped and coloured the leaves. I added a tiny punched flower to the centre of the vellum flower, and coloured it with inks. I used Nuvo Glitter Drops for the centre.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Shopping Our Stash: 'All That Glitters Is Gold'
Simon Says: 'Anything Goes'

Flower stamp from Stampin' Up! set 'Garden in Bloom'
Leaves stamp from Hot Off The Press
Clarity Stamp stencil: 'Dotty Wave'
Artistry Ink pads: Indian Jamun, Pampas
Adirondack Ink: Meadow
Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel
Nuvo Glitter Drops: Purple Rain

Hi Jen,

Oh goodness, I am grateful you took some close ups of the lovely flower because it is so delicate. I don't seem to have much luck with vellum but I think you may have inspired me to try playing with it a bit more.

Hope you have a super creative weekend!

Absolutely gorgeous CAS card, love the subtle specks of gold on this lovely Vellum flower. It's tricky to work with Vellum, it's so "touchy/feely" LOL!! if you're not careful with your heat gun it will burn. But you did an amazing job with this delicate bloom, beautifully done.
Thank you for playing along with us at SHOPPING OUR STASH, hope to see you back in the gallery again soon.
