Technique Tuesday - Translucent Florals

 The cards for today are using the technique of using Vellum cardstock. It's called cardstock vellum as it's quite weighty in comparison to something like greaseproof paper which looks very similar but is not as beautiful to work with as the vellum is. Using the Translucent Florals stamp set, I stamped the images of the flowers in a water based ink and/or Memento Tuxedo Black. Most of what I have done is in coloured inks as the stamps show so much of the whole image. The first card is white on white with a little added colour. This was based on some elements that one of the demonstrators were using on Sunday. I had a scrap, strip of the spotted vellum and added a small white mat over it which had been embossed using the Splatters embossing folder. It is one of 2 folders in the pack called Stripes and Splatters. I die-cut the petals from some more of the spotty vellum from the Vellum Basics papers.I added some Calypso Coral Blends pen to the back of the smaller flower and some of the individual leaves using the Granny Apple Green, both in the dark shades. The sentiment was die-cut from the Deckled Rectangles dies and the little flower centres were also di-cut from the scrap of coloured vellum. 

The second card is on a Fresh Freesia card base with another of the Deckled Rectangles die cut in white card. I embossed another of the pieces of white with the Splatters folder once again and added the sentiment landscape this time across the card. A simple spotty, clear, vellum, flower and some leaves, complete this one.
