The Flower Challenge #43 - Use You Latest Stamps or Dies


I read this as one of my new unused stamps or Dies (floral of course)
and since I have this trailer load of stamps and dies it then became a giant decision
which one...... oh joy

Todays card I have used this wonderful stamp set from The Ton called
'Coming Up Lilies'. Such a beautiful  stamp, I have heat embossed in Gold Rose
embossing powder and the one thing I truly love about their stamps is the delicate
lines and beautiful images.

I coloured with my usual Zigs making a mix with the red and yellow
so it made an orange I was happy with. A little bit of Wink of Stella
towards the ends to fade out the colour or remove excess. 
Im holding the card here so you can see I have added a watercoloured
panel behind the vellum that is rainbow coloured with Distress Ink
onto a panel that has embossed white pattern on it.

The photos just don't do the card the justice. Here you can see
the shimmer from the 'Wink of Stella on the upper edges of the flowers.
I could have put the flowers on a white card base but I felt this worked
so beautifully you will have to trust me on my description. 

The Newest think used is the Stamp set, only 9,999 to go.

Now its time to go check out what the rest of the Design Team have been up to and see
who our Guest Designer  is this month, and her stunning creation. 

Thank you so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon

This is absolutely gorgeous, Aileen. I didn't realize that you embossed the lilies on vellum until I saw the picture of you holding the card. Adding that fabulous background behind really took the card to a whole different level.

Your vellum lilies look incredible on that colourful patterned background Aileen. Such a clever idea my friend!

Simply gorgeous!!! You know how I love your work with vellum & this one is the best so far!! I just love it!

WOW! Aileen !! This is a phenomenon, not a card! I still don't really know how you got to the end results, but I sit and watch and wonder what was the order in which to create the card. You write that the card is much more beautiful than in the photos ... it's hard to imagine that this beauty could be even more beautiful!

This is gorgeous with those amazing watercoloured lilies, Aileen. The colours are bold, but the flowers are delicate looking - love the yellow gold embossing. And such a gorgous background that is soft and dreamy with vellum overtop. xx

Oh Aileen, heat embossing on Vellum is tricky but you absolutely mastered this technique on this amazingly gorgeous card.
I love the way your lilies look with the color from the markers and the fabulous background peeking through, just beautifully done.
Stay healthy and safe.
