Hi there crafters! Good to see you here! Spring is definitely around us, beautiful and inspiring! And today’s card is another flower card!
To be honest, I usually use vellum to stamp my messages or perhaps to add some kind of embellishment on my cards. But today, I was inspired by instructor Sara Naumann and her Magical Marker Techniques course over at the Altenew Academy, and thought to try and color on it with my copic markers.
I started by stamping the outline images from the Spring Daisy stamp set with Versamark ink on a piece of vellum and heat embossing it with white embossing powder. Then flipped the vellum over and colored the flowers with copics. The colors I used are: RV10, RV11, R85 for the petals and YG03, YG67 for the stems.
I love how soft and kinda messy the final result is. Reminds me of watercolored images. So, I continued by white heat embossing the ‘hello’ sentiment and adding some white splattering with white gouache and a water brush.
I ripped the top and the bottom of the vellum piece and attached it onto a piece of Pale Gray cardstock with a couple of matching eyelets and some twine.
I always like to give the receiver something interesting to touch on the card, even if it’s a rather CAS card such as this one. So, 3D elements are most of the times on my embellishment list. I think it adds something to the whole ‘handmade’ feel.
My panel was finally adhered on a standard A2 card base and done!
I’m so happy I gave this technique a try and I hope you will too. Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you soon!
