Vellum “Merci”

My first Saturday off since quite a while. Our vaccination center is slowing down and so I’m enjoying this weekend off. 😀 I managed to do some alcohol inks on the underside of a stamped white heat embossed eucalyptus branch. Using a stylus I added some yellows and greens, spritzed with alcohol, and cleaned the excess/edges of the leaves with a cotton swab dipped in 99% alcohol. This left a slight halo around the branch which pleased me. I folded one edge of the vellum and adhered this to a white panel and then onto a folded card. A Merci word die was also white heat embossed and completed the card.

Playing with the July CAS Mix Up Card Challenge theme and the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #494.

Thank you so much for stopping by, hope you are well, HUGz, Joanna

  1. Your eucalyptus leaves are so beautiful Joanna! I love the texture of adding the different shades. I also love the fact that your whole card front is vellum. So soft and delicate looking. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx

  4. Such beautiful eucalyptus leaves, Jo! Love the colors and the blended edges with the crisp heat embossing! The merci is perfect flowing off the stem! I’m so glad you got a weekend off. I hope you are getting some rest as well as creative time.

  5. Using the vellum as the front of your card was very clever. Love the result…your eucalyptus sprig appears to be floating, well anchored by your lovely sentiment. Really like the “halo” , too. Your card is a beautiful addition to the CAS Mix Up gallery
