White Magnolia

 The white magnolia is puffed out on the vellum. When the fibers in the vellum are broken up the vellum turns white. I do like this look and feel to the card. What are your thoughts?

   Good Morning Magnolia

   Soft Sea Foam A-2
   Night of Navy 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Garden Impressions DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Vellum 5-1/4 x 4

   Archival Basic Black

   Shaded Spruce
   Soft Sea Foam
   Sahara Sand

   Puffy Vellum

   Ball Stylus
   Foam Mat

First, I stamped the magnolia on the vellum and let it dry. I did use my MISTI to get a good impression of the magnolia. I had to stamp the middle several times.

Once the image was dry, I placed the vellum upside down on my foam mat. Using my ball stylus, I gently applied pressure in circular patters until the fibers inside the magnolia were all broken up. The black lines do not fade away, so do not worry.

Next, I colored in the leaves and the stem with my markers. I like to color on the back of the vellum to prevent any smearing.  

Once dry, I stamped my sentiment on the bottom. Let it dry a bit and then adhered it to the Garden Impressions DSP. This was then adhered to the Night of Navy panel and then onto the Soft Sea Foam card base. 

Vellum is perfect to use when you want to show off your background as it complements your main image.
