Hi everyone! As you may have noticed, lately I love playing with vellum elements on cards. In this card the butterflies and leaf are both made out of vellum. To break up all the pink-ish colors and add interest to the card, I added a number of white elements and played a lot with layers.
First I stamped the Detailed Leaf from Pinkfresh Studio on vellum with VersaMark ink and heat set the white embossing powder. On the back of the heat embossed leaf, I ink blended Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord, and Villainous Potion. I picked these colors as they went very well with the alcohol ink background pattern paper.
To break up all the pink/purple colors on the card, I wanted to add a few white elements. From white cardstock I die cut the Ornate Circle and Leafy Branch. The latter I adhered directly on the background with liquid glue, and the ornate circle I popped up with foam tape. For adhering the vellum leaf, I used silicone tape which you barely see, which is perfect.
For the sentiment I foiled Love with Aura foil on Hammermill cardstock. This soft gold foil matches nicely with the subtle gold in the background. To add some more interest and a few more gold elements, I also added Small Butterflies which I foiled on vellum.
As a finishing touch, I added Blush Glitter Drops to the background in a couple of places.
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 current Pinkfresh Studio challenge.
