Hi everyone! We woke up yesterday morning to more snow so I was definitely in the mood to create in bright and vivid colors! Luckily for me, the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge #210 was all-out bright too!
The actual challenge was to soften a too bright (is there such a thing!) or bold background using vellum. While I will probably never tone down anything colorful, I do love the softness that vellum adds to a project. In fact, I was so inspired that I created three cards!
The first, and my personal favorite, was stamped in bold pink and black Rosie Posie flowers on a white background. I simply added a decoratively edged panel of vellum overlaying these gorgeous blooms and added a bright pink bow with a tag!
I wanted to stay with the color and black theme so I used a graphic image from the Rosie Posie set to create this stunning honeycomb card! I actually adored the styling of the Ikat card Lizzie created for the challenge so much that I copied it! I added a full cover of vellum and added in a accent flower and ribbon.
For the last card, I used the small rose image from the set to create the background, this time in a striking yellow and black combo. A smaller panel of vellum was embossed in swiss dots and scalloped on the edge before I adhered it. Tiny bows and gems complete the look!
Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
