Rainin' Vellum!

This week for my challenge with my CCEE Splitcoaststampers group---we had to use vellum on a card.

This was simple! I LOVE vellum. I chose to emboss vellum (the swirl background) and attach it to white cardstock. I also used some vellum flowers for embellishments (I simply punched them using my SU! flower punch.)

This stamp is from Penny Black and it is called "Rainin' Daisies." You can find it at Stamper's Dream.
I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and used my Copic (cool grey #1) marker for some shading.


Materials used: Stamp-Rainin' Daisies (Penny Black, available at Stamper's Dream); cardstock-white, red, turquoise; vellum; ink-black; Prismacolor pencils; odorless mineral spirits; Copic marker (Cool grey #1); Cuttlebug and swirl embossing folder and nestabilities; flower punch (SU!); white brads (The Paper Studio); slit punch (SU!); paper piercing tool; dimensionals (SU!); white ribbon (SU!).

...Back to cleaning!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
