Thank You - H2H May Week #1

Heart2Heart's theme "Get Creative with Vellum" took me to Cruising through many You Tube tutorials for different ways of using vellum.  Using a combination of many these tutorials this was my decision on how to use vellum on my project.  Stamped with Versa Mark three sets of floral images on vellum, heat embossed in White Crystal, used CTMH inks and brushed on colors, fussy-cut each flower and attached using thin foam tape in between each flower. Also had done the foliage and leaves but wanted more contrast with the flowers so went with cardstock instead. 

Dry embossed the white background and die cut an oval in black because the contrast of the flowers against the black was striking.  Framed the white background panel with black and glued to white card base.  Arranged my flowers and foliage on card and using foam tape adhered to card. Die cut and glued the sentiment and randomly added some tiny sparkles on the black oval panel.   

Hop on by Heart2Heart for this week's theme using vellum and showcase your favorite project.  This is the first week's challenge in May so you have until the end of the month to create and submit your project.  And to earn a Perfect Attendance Badge you have until the end of May to create a card for each weekly theme during that month. 

On the inside of the card, stamped on the bottom corner the same flowers using the same colors as used on the vellum.

I don’t think I have ever seen vellum flowers that look as intense as these ones! They are so colourful and striking - amd layering them brings out the effect every more. What a fabulous technique and you mastered it with this card. STUNNING!
