artwork from Yellena James
I was immediately drawn to the colors and translucent layers and attempted to echo them on my card. My first try at making a card involved stamping and heat embossing Peonies on Parade images on a piece of heavy vellum and then coloring them with Copic markers.
I wasn't thrilled with my final panel, so started over stamping and heat embossing a few more images on a lighter weight vellum. This time I die cut everything before coloring.
The card didn't come together until I layered the die cut pieces onto the original stamped panel. The vellum panel was adhered to a white frame first to allow the layers to overlap the frame.
A Wet Paint die cut and One Big Happy stamp combine for the sentiment.
I am also linking this card to Seize the Birthday where the current challenge is Anything Goes.
