Wonderful Dogwoods

I finally felt well enough to make a card yesterday, I love Spring but the pollen always gets me! Today it is raining so I had to work with the little bit of natural light through my french doors for my picture! Years ago I learned a technique where you emboss an image that was stamped on vellum. My friend has been doing these gorgeous cards where she embosses the cardstock and it reminded me of the vellum technique.

I stamped the image with black memento ink and let it dry, then I colored the image with copics, YG03,YG05, Y00, the flowers are RV10, RV11 and RV13. Next I took a foam pad, and my embossing tool and outlined the images from the back. Then I die cut it and decided to sew it to the cardstock, this is my first time sewing on a card, and it was so easy. I have no idea why I haven't done it before. Guess you can bet you will be seeing more of that! Then I used my scor pal to frame the image on the light green cardstock, then I did it again on the darker green. The sentiment was stamped and die cut and then attached to the ribbon. All stamps are Hero Arts. Hope you have a great start to your week!
