This card has to be one my favorite that I have ever made. I just love it. When I started to make this card I had in mind to put some pearls and rhinestone brads and maybe a bow on it but as I was putting it together, I got to this point and decided to stop. I just loved the way it looked and didn't think it needed anything else.
By now you have to be thinking to yourself "Girl, step away from the Elements of Style set". I can't help it. It is such an awesome set. This is the first time I used it without making a vintage style card. And yes, that's the Presto Designer paper on the card. I swear a tear fell from my eye as I cut the 12 x 12 sheet to the size I needed. It broke my heart to cut it. The picture in the mini catalogue doesn't do this paper justice. It is by fair the nicest paper I've worked with and the option to make it any color, saa-weeet.
So for Try It Thursday the technique is stamping on vellum. For this card I stamped my flowers on one side with Stazon black ink and flipped it over and colored with my Stampin' markers on the back side. It gives a beautiful effect and I think it is called Stained Glass Technique but correct me if I'm wrong. I then stamped my En Francais background on Whisper White with Sahara Sand ink and sponged the edges with Sahara Sand. I attached the vellum over top with a spray adhesive. The butterfly was stamped on vellum, colored on back and cut out. The Presto DSP was colored using a brayer and Sahara Sand ink. (BTW, this is a 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" card)
If you scroll to the bottom I've attached a picture of all the snow I saw as I came down the stairs on Tuesday morning.
