Vellum and Origami Flower

I have been playing with some new toys this weekend from 'Design Memory Craft Faber-Castell', I just love to experiment with new things and have some ideas that I will be sharing with you all soon - if they work that is!

I used a Stampers Big Brush Pen, it is fabulous for inking up a stamp for a quick card and simple card.  You can see the pen I used on this card in this set here, it is a lovely green and perfect for leaves.  My inspiration came from the CASual-Friday challenge here, to use either vellum or acetate on a card and this is what I came up with.

To create this card I inked the leaves from Penny Black's 'Inspiring' 40-113 cling stamp using 'May Green' Stampers Big Brush pen and repeat stamped up the side of the card.

I then stamped the sentiment in the top left corner using Versafine black ink and the sentiment from 'Petal Party' 30-113.

The flower again from 'Petal Party' 30-113 was stamped onto vellum with Versmark ink and embossed with black powder and cut out.  I then added a a rosette to the centre, easily made by concertinaing a piece of origami paper and gluing the edges together and flattening!  A black gem was added to the centre to finish off the flower.  this was then glued to the bottom right corner of the card to finish.

Did you know that there is more inspiration using the new stamp designs over on the Penny Black Blog here, I have had a sneak peek at some of the designs and they will blow your socks off!

Come back tomorrow when I will have something fluttery to share with you!

This is quite beautiful & I love the way you decorated the centre of the flower. The leaf stamping is so effective with the placing as if it were a tendril & I love the oriental feel to the whole.
