Design Team Member Tonya Gibbs has

created an AMAZING sketch for us to work with!

Tonya created a beautiful Sketch for us all to use...the dare in the challenge 
is to use vellum. But I couldn't find one piece of it around my house.
So I had to be clever what could I use instead, I figured it out a 
transparency sheet. I have a step by step tutorial below for you, enjoy!


Pretty Blooms

I popped up my paper layers to help give lift and depth 
to my die cut!



Tutorial
1. Die cut your transparent sheet out (or vellum).


as you can see here...
I cut two out to color for my card.


2. Color your die cut transparent sheet or vellum.
I used my Copic Markers...you can use inks as well.
Start with your lightness color first...


then medium color to dark color blend.


3. Add a dark color to the centers to help them pop.


4. Repeat steps above to color the leaves and stems.




Then you are ready to piece your card together....with die cutting 
two pieces out and have them both colored. I could cut one 
apart to help tuck where I would like it.
Here is a close up!


Thanks for stopping in today!
It's not to late to play along....you can read the details here.

Hugs,
Peggy Lee
