Coloured Vellum

Hello, and happy Wednesday! 
We've had some glorious days ( see pic above) and at last we've seen some wonderful rain and some cooler temperatures . 
I've been taking an online class which has been fabulous and I have a card to share.  

This online class has some great teacher such as: 
 Jennifer Mcguire, Kristina Werner, Debby Hughes, Dawn Woleslagle, Kelly Marie Alvarez, 
Laura Bassen, Nicole Spohr Magouirk, Shari Carroll and  Yana Smakula.
These ladies have some great work online. 

On Day 2 of the class Jennifer shared a technique for colouring vellum, which I've used on my card. 
I coloured the vellum on the back with ink and attached it to a  Church window die . 
The sentiments are from the Care & Comfort 11 (set of 9 ) from Taylored Expressions.
I also added some white wink of stella to tone down the colour a little. It looks really effective in real life but a little difficult to capture on camera. It looks quite ethereal. 

I've enjoyed the class and I've got plans to make many more cards with vellum and acetate in the weeks ahead.

Birthday wishes

Hello there,
Well it's almost May and I haven't shared a card this year ! 
We've had a lovely warm summer and autumn. It's been difficult to stay inside and make cards. 

Anyway I've just made this card and I'm sharing it for the  April Scrapbook Challenge 
I've white heat embossed a Stampin Up rose and then added water to the enclosed areas before dropping in the colour. 

Here is the inspiration board  for the challenge.
 As you can see, I went with the rose image.
The square blocks of the board encouraged me to shape my image and card as I have. 
Thanks for looking!
