Hope Brightens Up Lives

Monday, 28 April 2014

Hello Everyone,
I recently bought a few sheets of vellum(or the semi-translucent paper) and I'm really enjoying exploring the possibilities with it.  I discovered that when it is inked, it gives a very soft, tinted effect.  It was then that an idea of making this card struck me. Take a look:

I went to the garden with my toddler a few days back and saw these garden lights/lamp posts getting lit up after dusk and surrounded by a swarm of dragonflies , moths and other insects. I wanted to execute these garden lights on my card but wasn't very sure how to, until I discovered the beauty of vellum. Yes, the light that you see is made up of a small piece of vellum inked, shaped, folded and stuck dimensionally over the white card stock. Hand-drew the pole and stamped the dragonflies from Fiskars-butterfly magic stamp set. Finally stamped the sentiment. 


If you have been following me for quite a while, you may have noticed that I love to add some hand made dimensional elements to my cards. I have done that with so many of my cards now. And I think this one is my personal favorite of them all, because of the beautiful message it gives, "Hope brightens up everybody's lives'. Couldn't agree more :)

Thanks for visiting me today.
