My Vellum Sympathy

Creative Tips:

1. This beauty combines fabric, ribbon, paper, and vellum. The variety of mediums add instant elegance to this project. The Paper Vellum is tinted with Baja Breeze and Kiwi Kiss. I dipped my Aqua Painter in ink and washed over the vellum. The leaves were hand cut, and the veins were added using a Bone Folder. The vellum curls slightly when moistened to create the natural look of a leaf.

2. The background is a piece of fabric leftover from my Big Shot Fabric Class. The color combination is Not Quite Navy, Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss and Very Vanilla. My inspiration for this one came straight from the fabric. The colors work together wonderfully. The base layer is wrapped in matching Very Vanilla Satin ribbon.

3. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. This set has a phrase for almost every occasion. The small oval background is stamped in Baja Breeze using the flourish from Elements of Style.

  1. Thanks, Dacia!!! You did a wonderful job on this—–how fun to see it recreated with that beautiful paper and yummy lace. I know I’ll be making more of these flowers in the future, too!
    Have a great day!

    • Thanks Broni, you hit the nail on the head. I had seen it the day before when blogging. I couldn’t find it again when I created the post. I loved the idea of using vellum for the flower. Thanks LeAnne for your awesome inspiration!
