Hello my friends and welcome back to the craft room and todays Flashback Friday Vellum Sunflower post. Today’s trip down memory lane takes us back to March of 2016. Today’s card features the Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower stamp and die set. I have been a huge Heartfelt Creations fan for many years all because of this stamp set. Let me show you how I created this fun birthday card.
Ever since I bought the Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower stamp and die, I have wanted to try using them with vellum paper, and I finally did!
After stamping the flowers with Versa Mark ink I embossed it with white embossing power and then cut out the image with the die. On the Heartfelt Creations web site, they colored the flowers with chalk ink; however I wanted to try this same technique with my Copic Markers. Each flower was first colored on the reverse side with the lightest color, R32 Peach. Then using the flicking technique I added the medium, R35 Coral and the darkest color, R37 Carmine. Finally using E18 Copper, I colored in the center of the flowers.
n the following picture, you may notice I didn’t get the die set correctly before cutting out the flowers. That’s something I need to work on to ensure it’s a straight cut. You can also see that I added more of the dark color to the largest flower and much lighter on the smaller.
Here’s a close-up of the finished flower.
