I decided I wanted to enter a card into the Mod Squad Challenge-Color Your Vellum which is ongoing now. And I thought to myself, "how hard can that be"? Well, believe me it isn't as easy as you might think. First of all, my embossing powder strayed all over even after using an anti-static pad. Then when I got one of the designs to work well, I messed up with coloring it. But persistence paid off and I got a vellum design colored and on the card I am showing today. I decided I would make it an Easter card since I will be needing a few of them.
My flowers are from the Gina K. Designs Spring Basket set and the sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs Springtime Baskets set. I inked up the flowers with a Versamark pad and then embossed them with Gina K. Designs White Detail embossing powder. The flowers were hand cut out of the vellum after I had them colored in with Copics. The sentiment was stamped with Gina K. Designs Moonlight Fog ink. The card stocks are Gina K. Designs Dusty Rose, Lemon Yellow, Moonlight Fog and White. My pink panel was die cut with a Cottage Cutz Double Stitched Rectangle die. The other layers were hand cut. I added a ribbon and some pearls to finish off the design before placing it on the white card base.
We have been having quite a bit of melting this weekend. So it certainly feels more like spring. But I wonder if all the moisture and humidity in the air wasn't part of the reason for my embossing powder taking flight and not sticking on the images when I stamped them. But at least I finally got one done that I thought didn't look too bad.
I hope your weekend went well and that you remembered to turn your clock ahead. I sure do not like the time change in fall or spring. It messes me all up. I feel so tired today. And, I went to bed early so that the lost hour should not bother me. Yeah, right!
Thanks so very much for visiting and I hope your week will be a wonderful one.
