Spring Bouquet... Inspiration Destination #97

Heyloo! I'm back with a new and exciting DT project for Inspiration Destination Challenge #97

This week, I've worked on Vellum! I love Vellum! Ever since my jewellery designing days when we had to design on it! I always loved the translucency and the classy feel it possessed. I used to print all colourful designs and stuff on it for fun (always intuitively wanting to do something more with it but back then, I did not know anything about crafting).

So imagine my delight when I finally knew how I could put my vellum sheets to not just good, but fantastic use!

So without further ado, I'll get on with my yummy project for this week, I love flowers and I love colours. My stamp for this week is Spring Bouquet by Just Inklined. And instead of using such a beautiful stamp on a card, I wanted to lend it a bit more personality. I present to you my floral home decor which can be put up as a wall hanging or a table decor.

(Pics best viewed in full screen.)

It was so much fun colouring on vellum with my Spectrum Aqua markers (I just love these! colouring with them is just so much fun), albeit I should tell you that colouring on vellum with water colours requires a lot of efforts than colouring on a cardstock. But it was totally worth it! Especially with the raised and a little wrinkly effect that it lent to my project. To contrast that, I've added a circular layer of crackle glaze between the two pearl lines and coloured it brown.

Hope you liked my project and I would love it if you could leave some feedback and let me know how I've done.
