Coloured Vellum

The current challenge at Mod Squad Challenge is Color Your Vellum - we need to have vellum that we have coloured as our focal image. I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge - Easter/Spring Inspiration, and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Easter Inspired. Both of these challenges have a beautiful set of photos for inspiration. I chose the flower and colours for my inspiration.

I stamped the flower on the vellum with a pale lavender ink and heat embossed it in clear. I coloured it with alcohol markers and then stamped and embossed the sentiment.

I had a piece of silver sequins foil that I had used to foil a background (I had used a foilable image sheet from the Sending Love StampTV kit), and decided to attach it to a piece of pink cardstock with an adhesive sheet. I should have just left the top covering on the foil, but I removed it which left sticky spots where the tiny heart flowers were from the original foiling. I used some fine glitter to cover these spots. You can see the tiny flowers under the vellum as they are hard to see in the picture in the foil.

I folded the top and bottom of the vellum over the foiled piece, attached this to a pink layer and adhered this to a white card base.
