I decided to try coloring SSS Cosmos Stem die cuts with Copics--not as intimidating as a stamped panel.
Love the peachy colors with some yellow Stickles in the centers. The background is made with the largest pieces of Birchpress Grace Layers A, B & C. They're all colored with DO lucky clover. I used a lighter hand for the top & clear embossed the bottom layer.
I didn't like the stark, white background, so lightly sponged on some squeezed lemonade. The white embossed sentiment is from SSS Thoughtful Messages & the dots are Pico Embellisher.
The CAS Mix Up challenge inspired me to try again to use my Alcohol Inks. Not sure I've tried them on vellum before & the look is really pretty! I did remember a tip to use fewer colors together & I think that is why my panels turned out this time. For this card I used blue, green & silver fixative splatters.
The sentiment from SSS Thoughtful Messages was stamped in Versafine Clair Morning Mist. We mailed this one to an elderly, extended family member facing heart valve replacement surgery.
GK Monthly Mix challenge. I mixed pink & red AI & added some gold foil to this vellum panel. I stamped the poinsettia from GK Festive Flowers in gold sparkle ep, but it didn't give enough definition to the image.CAS Mix Up & ModSquad.
I backed each piece with plain vellum & used foam tape to adhere the pieces. Decided I needed green leaves, so made another vellum panel with Lettuce & Sublime Alcohol Inks plus gold foil. The background is a Sizzix Tim Holtz poinsettia folder used with a deeper gold shimmer paper. Winnie & Walter noel die was cut twice from black cardstock & brushed with a gold shimmer pen--really pretty in person. I'm entering ABNH, ModSquad & SSS Wednesday.
