Dry Embossing on Velum

I didn't know if I would get a card made for this week's challenge because it is *finally* warm in Saskatchewan, and I have been spending most evenings outside cleaning up the yard and planting a garden.

Since the tiger lily is the provincial flower of Saskatchewan, I thought this would be a great image to use to welcome in the warm weather.

The technique this week (in months with 5 Saturdays, the last one will be a technique challenge) that Lauren gave us was to dry emboss on velum. I am really pleased with the image, but not really happy with the card. I can tell it was kind of rushed to get finished. I am sure my grandma, or someone in my family will like it, so it won't totally go to waste.

I stamped this lily stained glass in versamark on velum paper and dry embossed the lines of the flower using a small stylus.

The image was coloured using SU markers on a cd, then picking up the colour with a blender pen.

Please check out the rest of the design team and see what they came up with this week.

Oooh Tamara! THis is so elegant. The dry embossing and watercoloring technique REALLY highlighted the stained glass look of this stamp!
