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.
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.
