Hi there, I've been playing around with vellum and panpastels using the beautiful new Sunny Sunflowers stamps from Chocolate Baroque. As you can see these stamps look just as lovely in pastel tones as they do with traditional sunflower colours.
I've used an embossed background, made with my cuttlebug for the background, matted on pink and then green card. I made this in two strips as my bug isn't big enough to emboss such a large piece of card, no problem though as I covered the join up with ribbon and lace.
I cut an aperture in the larger piece of embossed card and layered it up over my favourite sentiment stamp, from Chocolate Baroque's Loving Sentiments set. I embossed the sentiment in white and it doesn't show up too well on the pic but it reads :Make wish and unwrap a beautiful day"
To make the sunflowers I stamped the images using versamark and embossed with WOW White Pearl EP and then cut them out. I coloured the vellum on the back using PanPastels from the tints set to give the vellum a delicate colour. To finish off I added a bow using some pretty floral ribbon from my stash.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts: Ice cream colours
Bearly Mine: Tic tac toe ( my line is Lace, ribbon, sentiment)
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop: Lots of Layers
Shopping our Stash: Double the ribbon
