It is Thursday which means it is time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. This week we have #CCMC652, which is a color challenge.
For this color challenge I embossed some strips of Just Jade and Highland Heather CS using the Tasteful Textile 3D folder and attached them to a Basic White panel. I brought in Seaside Spray as the card base and the layer behind the image. The Corner Bouquet stamp was stamped using Versamark and white embossing powder. I really like the way the Corner Bouquet stamp set looks embossed in white, especially on vellum. I don't know why I didn't pair these products together earlier. A few flowers in Seaside Spray and Highland Heather were punched using the Confetti Flowers Border punch and attached to the vellum. I purchased the Confetti Flowers Border punch kind of on a whim and I am glad I did. I use this punch a lot and love that it punches out 3 sizes of flowers.
Tip: Use the point of the bone folder in the center of the flowers to create a little dimension and definition.
I also like the way the Butterfly Gala butterfly looks embossed in white on vellum, so I added a couple. These butterflies also help to hide the Mini Glue Dots I used to attach the vellum to the Seaside Spray layer. The other glue dots are hidden by the Corner Bouquet image. This is the best strategy I have for attaching vellum without the adhesive showing.
I added the Seaside Spray Metallic Ribbon and the silver pearls (from the Metallic pearls) to the center of the flowers for a little extra shine. I tried coloring some rhinestones using the Just Jade Stampin' Blends to use as the flower centers but decided the silver pearls looked better especially with the ribbon.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team created for this challenge.
