Back from Creativation and full of ideas and energy. I had a blast and especially enjoyed to meet Suzy, Justine, Kymona, Denise, Monica, Janis, Jennifer and all the other amazing people that I finally saw in real life 🙂
But for now I wanted to share a new card with you. I’m up on the So Suzy blog with a simple black and white card with a colorful touch of stained glass roses.
I started by stamping the Rose Trio onto vellum using Versamark and heat embossed it with simple black embossing powder. Then I had to fuzzy cut the entire thing 😛
Now I turned it around and colored them with Zig brush markers. I added a mix of greens to the leaves and reds to the blossoms. Because I colored the backside, I didn’t need to worry about coloring over the lines. Turning it to the right side reaveled the beauty of this technique, it now looks like stained glass.
The rest was simple. I stamped the beautiful “What if you fly?” sentiment onto a white piece of cardstock and cut it to cover about 2/3 of the card. Then I cut a black piece of cardstock that covers about 1/3 of the card and adhered the rose on top. Because it’s a vellum rose, I added the adhesive only to areas that had embossing powder on the other side. Finally, I added a black piece of card stock behind the panel and assembled everything.
What do you think? Have you ever tried coloring the backside of vellum or acetate?
