Delightful Daffodil

My new Flourishes 'Signs of Spring' set just arrived in the mail and I couldn't wait to try it out. I decided to use my new daffodil stamp for this weeks Timeless Tuesday Challenge over on their Blog. The challenge... use vellum on your card. I have gone with the 'Fake Parchment' look. I have stamped the image using white colorbox ink and embossed with white powder directly onto a piece of vellum. I have coloured the daffodil with Tombow markers and blended with the tombow blender pen. (If you use this method at home make sure you do NOT blend with water as it buckles your vellum.)
I then assembled the card, the yellow strip of cardstock down the left side of the card hides where the vellum is attached to the card. I finished the card off with a piece of paper lace.

Until next time
Inking of you all
