Tutorial Challenge at Inspired by Stamping.

There is a great new tutorial over at Inspired by Stamping 
and it is to make a card with coloured vellum. 

I haven't used too much vellum but after seeing this great tutorial 
I thought it time I got that vellum stash out and had a play with it.

I was also having some fun with a few new products I had purchased recently.
They were Ranger's Sticky Embossing Powder and Twinklets Diamond Dust.

I used basic red card stock for the base and added some designer paper.

Also used
Spellbinders Fleur De Lis
GinaK Vogue Vases stamps set
IBS Elegant Flowers.
White Embossing Powder

I stamped the IBS flower onto the vellum and inked the image. 
It wasn't as dark as I wanted so cut out another flower and attached it to the back.
I embossed the vase with the sticky embossing powder 
and then sprinkled the diamond dust to it. It gives it a crystal like look.
It is a shame the photograph doesn't show the rhinestones as sparkly as they are. 
Finished off with some glitter around the Fleur De Lis.
Don't know if I added a bit to much bling
 but felt that it needed something especially as the vase was so sparkly.

I enjoyed this tutorial and will be making more before this challenge ends.

Thanks for stopping by.
