Magenta On Vellum

card with floral image and butterfly stamped on blue vellum with a touch of pink ink
i’ve been playing along with the magenta monthly challenges in celebration of their 20th year and the june challenge is to use the colours of their logo. i stamped this magenta image on blue vellum, heat embossed and coloured with distress inks, which is what i enjoy doing most when i create; even if it’s just a little bit while i’m waiting for my RA flareup to disappear, so i’m also submitting this to the stampalot challenge ‘what’s your crafty passion’ theme. i couldn’t get a photo to show the embossed detail, which looks so much better in real life. thanks for popping by.

  1. As soon as I looked at this I immediately thought overlay. It’s beautiful Ms. Linda. It is so exquisite I think you need to have this matted and framed. Wow, your mind is an open canvas. Hugs.

  2. This is utterly gorgeous, Linda! I love butterflies and harebells (must get that stamp!) and your lovely soft colouring has really brought them to life. Thank you for sharing your Crafty Passion with us at Stampalot Challenge, and good luck.

  3. Good morning Linda,

    Your card is as Lynne said totally gorgeous, you know how I love my butterflies and wage of colour them against the blue background looks stunning.

    I had totally forgotten until I saw your card that I have that stamps somewhere and really should give it an airing.

    So far so good on the word recognition program, in fact I’m totally blown away with its efficiency. Reading some of the reviews I had me niggling doubts especially those relating to how accurately it picks up speech, but apart from one little boo-boo a couple of days ago (I used the word shot and it replaced the O with a different letter which I didn’t realise until my mail had gone) all is going well. I am sure you like me will find it a great asset.

    Thank you so much for sharing your ‘Crafty Passion’ with us at Stampalot Challenge this month.

    Have a lovely weekend.

  4. Gorgeous! Great technique. I too find it frustrating when the 2D doesn’t do the 3D justice. Sometimes taking a detailed photo with the card laying flat works to help the reader appreciate the detail.

Thanks so much for commenting!
