Seize the Birthday - Vellum

Hello again, everyone!

Today I have one more card to share with you I made for the latest Seize the Birthday Challenge!

The Toppings option for the next fortnight is VELLUM. As always our gallery is open to every newly created birthday card! 

Now let's take a look at my card. 
Can you guess where I used a vellum? Sure, I did ;).

This stamp with a cute girl is called Flower Charm (Penny Black). I stamped it in black pigment ink on some Bristol smooth paper and colored the image with Zig brush markers. I added some accents with white gel pen here and there and stamped the sentiment by PB in purple.

I used the vellum for paper piecing. I colored a piece of vellum with alcohol inks (Shell Pink, Flamingo) and blending solution, stamped the image in black StazOn and cut the dress out.

I added some shade on the back of the vellum using purple Zig marker. I then glued the dress carefully only with four tiny dots of glue on the colored image. I foam mounted the colored panel on the card base and added some clear sequins.

After coloring with alcohol inks the vellum warped quite a bit. But I love it as it gives the dress movement and dimension.

Now hope you would stop by Seize the Birthday blog to see the gorgeous inspiration cards from my fellow DT members and our Surprise Party Guest Anita!
Looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery!

Have a good day!
