More Camellias

I have another card here with this Camellias stamp, which is so pretty, but this time I colored it in shades of lilac.  (The first card is here.)


I did my standard trick in the background.  Since I did not have the right color of purple cardstock, I used a darker one and put vellum over top.  It is a good trick that often works out.


The card front could be used for any occasion, but I want to use it for a Valentine, so I stamped on the inside with light ink and then over top with a love sentiment.

Supplies:  Power Poppy Simply Camellias stamp set, Short Stacks stamp set (for sentiment), Memento Ink, Hero Arts Soft Lilac shadow ink, Spectrum Noir Markers (if I find my scrap of paper, I will come back and list the marker names here), Cuttlebug embossing folder, Gina K Wild Lilac cardstock, Spellbinders Labels 18.

I would really love to participate in these challenges and hope you will check them out, too!

Hi Heidi, a great card and a brilliant idea that I must remember for later, the vellum looks great with the embossing, we have lots of camellias down our driveway, they are so pretty and you have done a stunning job colouring them, the largest one looks like you have layered it up so it leaps off the card... have a wonderful week...

Fabulous and delightful. I like how you coloured, especially the green leaves. The vellum adds a nice touch. I really like the way you did your inside. I'll have to remember to try it myself.

I like the embossed vellum over the purple to tone it down. These are lovely flowers.
