Floral Vellum Birthday


I'm playing along at TIME OUT, where the challenge is to CASE this gorgeous card by Tracey:


On mixed media paper I stamped the Histoire du temps XL stamp by Carabelle with Versamark, then washed over it with Distress Inks - it didn't resist quite as much as I'd thought.  You can just make out a clock face on the left, but IRL you can see a lot more of the image. My panel is one quarter of the complete image - it's huge!

I stamped the flowers from Winnie & Walter on coloured vellum, white-embossed them and cut them out, adhering them with Invisible Dots for vellum.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted, and I doodled a border on the panel before adding it to the card base.

I'm also adding it to Winnie & Walter's Join In To Win.  It's been ages since I played here!
