...Most of today was spent crunching numbers for taxes (Eeeeeewwwww!) so I needed a break and decided to play with the new Tim Holtz stains on vellum. TOTALLY cool! They worked awesome for punched flowers with stained Kraft Glassine punched leaves. I had so much fun that I turned then into a card!!
For the card, I used Graphic 45 Curtain Call and Steampunk Debutante papers along with a Kaisercraft wood swirl that I cut into two peices. A few Tim Holtz Ideology gears added the finishing touch.
Here's how to make the flowers:
Spread the stain over the entire vellum piece. I used Fired Brick, Dusty Concord, and Wild Honey.
Mist the vellum to intermingle the colors.
Blot away excess liquid.
Crumple the vellum and highlight the raised areas with Distress ink...I used Vintage Photo.
Punch or die cut flowers. I used 3 layers of flowers.
each flower is unique because of the intermingled colors.
Stain the Kraft Glassine with Peeled Paint Distress Stain. When dry, punch leaves for flowers.
Add veining with stylus tool. They look like real leaves!!!!
Layer together and attach with a brad. Crumble petals together and manipulate the petals till you like how they look. Add a little bit of Adirondack Silver Dabber to the petal edges.
Next, I making blue ones.....
I will make a Youtube video later today...
