As I mentioned in my previous post, I did a demonstration on making vellum flowers at the Stamp Camp/Retreat I attended last weekend. This was the card I made with the rose I created at the demonstration.
I used my Tim Holtz 'Tattered Florals' die to cut out the petals, and to give my rose a fuller look, I cut 2 of the largest flowers. The leaves are also vellum, cut with Spellbinder 'Foliage' die, and coloured with 'Crushed Olive' distress ink.
The petals are coloured with Adirondack 'Raisin', and the centre is Flower Soft 'Lemon'.
The inside of the card is decorated to co-ordinate with the front. I layered 2 Spellbinder Classic Scalloped Squares over the DP, and added a Memory Box 'Madera' corner die-cut. The gorgeous DP, was a fab '50% off' special on a bargain table at an art shop in Newcastle recently. I only bought a couple of sheets (A4), but wish I had bought more. It is by Cristina Re, and has the most luxurious texture. I was so pleased to find that the reverse side matched the colour of my rose perfectly..
I used Spellbinder 'Fleur de Lis', and Marianne dies for the card front. The sentiment is computer generated 'Brock' font.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenge -
Daring Cardmakers - 'Vellum'
