Vellum Flower Overlay

ModSquad Challenge: Vellum Flowers

Judy has thrown down a vellum flower challenge that must be the focal point of your card at the ModSquad Challenge blog. The sponsor for this challenge is Gina K Designs so I decided to stamp one of the larger flowers from the Forever Flowers stamp set which was part of a card kit. Not being the best at coloring, I decided to stamp my focal flower on vellum and heat set with which embossing powder and then repeat the image in the same position on a piece of white cardstock. The flower on the card stock was the image I colored with colored pencils. The sentiment was from Gina K Designs’ Dazzling Dahlia stamp set which was part of Sentimental Summer StampTV kit. The sentiment was heat embossed in gold embossing powder. I added some splatter on the white card layer in bubblegum pink and some gold then tiny dots of glue around the back outline of the vellum layer to adhere to the white panel. All mounted on a pink card base.

Whew….that’s a lot for me!!

Thanks for stopping in for a peek! Have a wonderful Sunday!!

  1. You excelled yourself with this one. The use of vellum is perfect over the top of the coloured flower. Beautiful!

    1. Thanks, Johanna, I like the way it turned out and made the coloring of the flower softer looking.

  2. Gayle, this is fantastic! I love both how you added the color to show through the vellum, and how you adhered the vellum. Great ideas.

  3. I love the simplicity of this card. It’s just lovely, well done!! Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us over at The Mod Squad!
