I've made another two floral cards using vellum and zigs. This first one you will be going to see the vellum as after I had finished colouring I found my hand had transferred colour into areas it didn't belong.
I fussy cut the blooms and they sat there for a few months as I wasn't particularly happy with them. I ended up adding more colour and then pulled some colour out. Added a bit of shimmer then attached to this pink and white pattern paper.
Love & Hugs.
You can see the shimmer on the petals in this photo. I used a bit of glue to attached the flowers to the pattern paper and found that because I had added so much colour the vellum had warped and I needed a fair bit of glue. Then I found that there were bits of glue all over and I needed to remove and it became a card that I nearly threw out half a dozen times.
I ended up deciding to keep the card, added the sentiments and some gems, its okay but not a card I am particularly proud of.
This next card is the vellum with silver heat embossing and my darkest and lightest blue Zigs.
I was a lot lighter in my use of colour and was really pleased in the end. The flower is from The Ton and is called Amazing Gardinia
I did a very light grey around the outline then added the "Just Because" sentiment and gems.
I added these to a white card base and Im afraid the card looks a little dull and grey but IRL the white of the cardbase totally highlights the rose.
I hope you enjoy these and come back to see more.
Both cards are absolutely beautiful Aileen, nice save on the vellum flower!
I love both of these cards very much, I always forget to use vellum!
Your fabulous skills are showing again... and those fabulous stripes through the vellum - love that!
