What a simple card this turned out to be. First I stamped and heat embossed this delicate little flower onto a piece of vellum then I coloured with my copics on the side of the embossing. Didn't worry about blending and multi layers as its apparently not good for your copics to touch the embossed ink. I did try on the other side of the vellum but it looked too wishy washy to me so I went with the proper side and tried to be careful (as I can be which isn't very). Anyway used two colours to add a bit of variety as you can see with the petals, leaves and flower centres.
It was quick and easy to colour the piece then it was what to do with it. Thats the long process, of course it looked brilliant on a white card base to show it up BUT it didnt do anything for me.
I fiddled around a bit, got sidetracked. Made a different card or two then came back, saw the purple spotty dotty acetate and it just went bang, bang, bang (well maybe not that loud) but it fell into place.
White card base, purple dotty acetate layer connected by putting small amounts of glue on the purple dots.
I also folded it over at the top with a quarter inch over the edge and attached a strip of double sided tape. Attached the vellum to the acetate with glue behind the flowers and a dot at each corner that I covered over with an enamel dot.
Finished off with my die cut 'Smile' using a gold sparkle dot for the 'smiles' 'i'.
Ohh my goodness I loved it, so bright and uncluttered and just looks brilliant and perfect for a friends birthday. Inside it says
"They say that your memory starts
to go as you get older.......
Happy Birthday Whoever You Are"
That cracks me up!!!
