Recipe Challenge Vellum Colored Card

 It is Recipe Challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The challenge is to use 1 image, 2 different papers, and  3 embellishments, which can be 3 of the same or 3 different kinds. I am using an image from one of our sponsors, Wink Wink Ink, the Rainy Day-Bear in Raincoat and Rubber Boots.

My card is also inspired by a technique used by Jennifer McGuire in her blog on Vellum Coloring. She has a video demonstrating this technique. I encourage you to go, check it out.

The image is printed on Strathmore Watercolor paper and colored with watercolor pencils. The image is masked using an extra image which was fuzzy cut. Using a stencil brush, I created a soft background using Tim Holtz Broken China Distress ink. I used watercolor pencil to create the landscape to ground the image. I die cut this into a circle using My Favorite Things Stacked Circle die. I scored the circle on the left side to create a tab.

For the vellum, I am using Grafix. I swiped a Hero Arts Pool to Navy Ombre Ink. I wiped off the excess ink using a rag. I zapped the vellum with a heat gun to speed the drying process. I stamped a cloud image from Paper Smooches Spectrum set on the vellum using StazOn Cotton White ink. The vellum is cut at 6"x5", and scored at 2" to create a tab.

I have a 4"x5" white note card cut. I adhered the vellum to this by applying adhesive to the inner tab area. This creates the card itself. I then adhered the circle die cut onto the vellum.

For the sentiment, I stamped this using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed it with clear powder. I am using Lawn Fawn and Paper Smooches stamps. I fuzzy cut the speech bubble leaving a small white margin around it. I adhered the sentiments using adhesive foam.

I cut a 4.5"x5.5" white note card. I embellished the sides of this note card with a yellow washi tape. I adhered the vellum card to this. It just makes the vellum card sturdy. I colored in the bear's raincoat with a yellow Wink of Stella Shimmer pen, and the boots with a red Spectrum Noir Sparkle Shimmer pen. I adhered gems and sequins to the front of the card.

If your vellum warped with the heating, which what happened to mine, just put some magnets over the curled edges. I left mine overnight and was glad to see that it straightened out when I came back to it.

I completed the recipe as follows: a digital image from Wink Wink Ink; two different papers, watercolor paper and vellum; and 3 embellishments, gems, sequins and washi tape.

I hope you join us in this challenge. Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a blessed & brilliant day!
