Spotlight Vellum!

Good Evening and thank you for your visit.

My card today was made using a technique which I saw on Karen's blog here  .  I think it would work really well with a bouquet of flowers in place of the lady.

The whole image was stamped onto a piece of vellum and the outside of the frame coloured on the back.  Next time I think I will heat emboss the image.

I stamped the image a second time onto a scrap of white card and fussy cut only the lady.  After using a quickie glue pen on a few places on the front of the image I  stuck her onto the back of the vellum, being careful to match it with the image on the front.

The piece of  background paper is quite a strong yellow colour which is diffused by the vellum on top.  It came in a pad as a freebie with a magazine a long time ago.

  After putting adhesive on the back of the lady I laid the vellum down onto the paper and stuck it in place and trimmed the vellum to fit.  I stitched the top of the vellum to the card with some stitching and finished off by adding a few details on the front image with a gold gel pen.

I'm joining in with my card at Pixies Snippets Workshop Week 248  and also
