Make it Monday #121 and CFC106




I haven't done a Make It Monday in a while but I wanted to try this technique because the results look so pretty. This week's technique was coloured vellum flowers.  I knew that I wanted to try it out with the Peony images from Pretty Peonies. The only vellum I have has little flecks of gold in it, so I hope it doesn't look like dirt or ink on the flowers. Embossing was a bit hot on the fingers but the results were amazing.  Now after I had trouble lining up the Peony on the die cut, then colouring both flowers I realized that I had the die upside down. I didn't have any more vellum so therefore my card ends up truly unique. LOL I  also wanted to tie this into this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to have something go over the edge.  Here is my card.

Absolutely amazing vellum flowers. I've got to try my hand at this. Your whole card is lovely. Great hexies, and I love the separate happy and birthday sentiments. So cool on that flag. Bev

Beautiful card, Tracey. I never would have know about the upside-down flowers - I still am having a hard time seeing where it is upside down! My eyes are either really bad, or you did a fabulous job covering! ;-) I love that you used the Pretty Peonies images - they're perfect for this, I think. Love the background, too. Lovely all around!

OH my gorgeous! Those flowers and that hexi overlay, swoon! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays this week!

Kelly Griglione said...

ohh MY!! This is soooo gorgeous, Tracey! The white embossed flowers on vellum with color added are just something else. Great choice in having the vellum hang over the edge since you can see through it. Thanks for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge this week!
