Leaves, Script and Vellum

Welcome

This card is the result of an afternoons fun in my studio


I started by stamping through a stencil, once that was dry I then sponged distress inks over the stamping.


I did not want to smother the colours of the stencilling, so used vellum to 'carry' the embossed sentiment.
I had no dark brown card, so inked the edges of the next layer 


I then die cut the doily in vellum, stamped and embossed the flower and adhered it in the bottom corner.


After assembling the card, I then trimmed the doily to the edge of the card.
The final details were the pearls.

Love this card Maxine and the embossing looks super good on the vellum. Great idea... I would never have thought of stamping through a stencil but it's a brilliant idea and a fab look.
