Thinking Of You

What a lovely Sunday afternoon it is here to day.  After a bike ride outside I was off to work on some cards, yeah!

I am in LOVE with this technique!  I saw it over at Gina K's site, Stamp TV and I HAD to try it.  I love the results you can achieve, and it was so much fun.  It is called "Stained Glass Velum Technique"  (You can watch the video instructions here).  She did a lovely Christmas card and it inspired me to do this card.  

It is for a dear friend that is going through the BIG "C", and I wanted to do something pretty for her.  I used silver embossing powder and colored the light purple and green on the flower with my Copics.

I really love the way it turned out - accept for one thing.  I wish I had stamped the sentiment with a dark purple ink instead of black.

Now I finally know what I want to do with the vellum that I purchased, LOL!  Give this a try, I know you will be glad you did.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  Thanx for stopping by and hugs to all.
