Tulips on Vellum

Hi everyone.  Back with a reminder card for CAS Watercolour March Challenge - Watercolour on Vellum.  This fun challenge was chosen by Jenny.


For my card above, I place my vellum piece in my Misti.  Arranged the tulip image, coloured the image with SU! markers and spritzed with just a little water, then stamped onto the vellum.  I love how it turned out with the variation of shades even though I only used one purple marker and one green.  And the vellum gives a dreamy look to the image.  So soft and pretty.

I left the vellum in the Misti to dry thoroughly before mounting it to the back of my white frame.  I stamped a simple sentiment using the same green ink, to finish the card.

Here's a close-up ...

Goodness, this one really catches the eye Loll! So beautiful are those flowers, I love them water stamped on the vellum. They indeed look dreamy and oh so beautiful! Hugs, Brenda

I love the dreamy effect you achieved stamping these gorgeous tulips, Loll! It seems like using just a little bit of water must have created the variation in the shades of purple, and I think it looks amazing! I am definitely going to try this technique...thanks for your inspiration ~ Barb xx

This one has such a wonderful, ethereal quality to it! I love that effect, Loll. I'd have never even tried this but now I'm inclined to. Haven't seen that stamp before either.

Gorgeous card Loll, the markers on the stamp is a great way to use the vellum...seems like I'll be hunting out some stamps to try this one.

It's really a lovely card and effect! Question: did you stamp on the back of the vellum?

Loll said...

Hi Marilyn. I stamped on the front of the vellum. It worked fine. Loll :)

Loll, I'm loving all your velum techinques. Wow such a beautiful effect

Lovely dreamy effect in my favourite purple/green colour combo for flowers, Loll. You must have spritz it with just the right amount of water to get such depth and detail. Well done! xx

Lovely soft look to the tulips with the markers and spritzing. It looks great with the focal image set back inside the frame.

Gorgeous, Loll ... the variation in colour is amazing ... there's such a wonderful sense of depth and dimension to these beautiful blooms! Hugs, Anita :)

Bobby said...

If only I could get just the right amount of spritz to make this work, Loll. The variation of color in one stamping is amazing.

Julia Aston said...

I would never think you could get such a wonderful dark print on vellum Loll - your technique worked wonderfully - coloring with markers and spritzing! I can see a work session in my craft room coming up!! I've not had much luck with vellum!!xx

Darnell said...

Wow, Lolly, I never would have thought stamping with this technique would work on vellum, but it's stunning! Thank you for giving it a try and sharing yet another fun way to create card art!! Hugs, Dolly
