"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

Vellum Flowers

I saw this card on LeeAnn Greff's blog and had to try it.  I changed out the colors a bit.

I'm not sure how she colored her flowers, so this is how I made the flowers: I embossed the flowers in white on white vellum.  Next, I colored the back of the flowers (just the centers) using SU markers. Starting in the center and using a water brush, I drew the colors to the edge of the flowers.  Next, I die cut the flowers.  I used double-sided tape in just the middle of the flowers.  I figured out I needed to use alot less water for the back of the flowers because the vellum curled easily.

I stamped the leaves and sentiment before embossing the white cardstock.  I also used Sharpie markers to color the pearls for the flower centers.
