Hi everyone! Lately I love playing around with florals on vellum, it gives such a lovely subtle look. As the background is very colorful, these neutral floral elements were the perfect touch. The inspiration for this card came from the Pinkfresh Studio challenge.
First I started with creating the background by using the Floral Backdrop Coverplate on white cardstock. Inspired by the colors of the Pinkfresh Studio challenge, I chose the following Distress Oxide colors to work with: Salvaged Patina, Saltwater Taffy, Dried Marigold, Squeezed Lemonade, and Evergreen Bough. I ink blended these in diagonal stripes, which also matches with the challenge. Using all these colors on the background gives such happy vibes!
For the focal point, I used the Fancy Circles die on both white and Ballet Slippers cardstock. On top of this, I adhered the sentiment from the Ephemera pack. To decorate the circle and give it a more finished look, I prepared a number of floral elements. The flowers themselves are from the Dreamy Florals set, which I white heat embossed on vellum. The leaves are from the Garden Wreath die set, which I die cut from white and pearlescent vellum.
As a finishing touch, I adhered Blush Glitter drops in the center of the flowers.
I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
This card was inspired by the February 2023 Pinkfresh Studio challenge.
