Bordering on Romance Mother's Day Card
I'm giving this card to my mom this weekend; I know she'll LOVE it! I used the Stained Glass Technique on the flower image. I embossed the image using White Embossing Powder and White Craft ink on one side of the Vellum Cardstock, then I used Markers to color on the back side of the image for that soft look.
I also embossed one of the flowers in the Mixed Bunch stamp set, punched it out using the Blossom Punch, then cut out 2 of the petals to have it look like a butterfly. To color the Vellum Cardstock for the butterfly, I used my brayer to spread ink onto vellum, then let it dry thoroughly, flipped it over and embossed with White Craft Ink and White Embossing Powder.
Finally, I used a stamping sponge and the Pear Pizzazz ink pad and sponged color on the Pear background layer that I ran through the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder; this really gave the layer an beautful enhanced look!
