First Time Used and Coloured Both

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.

 These blooms are from Altenew and the combined die cut sentiments are from The Ton called
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.
