The Playdate Cafe #186 and Make It Monday #121


Uh, oh - I just checked The Play Date Cafe when Linky expires - and that was in 3 hors and 39 minutes!!!! Well if you think about it  that is plenty of time, given that at the Hero Arts flickr group scramble the time limit is 90 minutes and that includes uploading your pics....




I already thought about the vellum flower thing that Betsy Veldman so expertly demonstrated on the weekly Make it Monday post from Papertrey. Originally I had something different in mind and I already had started it, but id did not work with those colors....And I don't really have a good Papertrey flower, that would work for this technique....So I pulled out one of my favorite flowers from Hero Arts, colored the vellum after heat embossing it and cut it out. I used the Papertrey Harlequin embossing folder to make the background. I first cut it, but I did not like how it shined/shone? through the vellum.




So I just embossed the paper with the Harlequin embossing folder. I glittered up the flower with Stickles. The sentiment strip is cut with a papertrey die and the sentiment is also from Papertrey - Global Greetings.
Here is a close-up:



I wonder if Papertrey likes the Hero Arts flower?

And then I changed my mind... - clearly I do have too much time at hands..... so I took the flower off, scored a white card stock and mounted the flower on that with a different sentiment (Papertrey Cutting Garden);


I like the white card the best - waht do you think?

And what does Mr. Linky say? 1 hour and 49 minutes - shall I try something else? Just kidding....

I prefer the white card Cornelia, the colours on the vellum flower stand out more.

Sooooo pretty. For me, the white works better but that may be because I find that sentiment so perfect to balance the flower.

Einfach zauberhaft ....vor allem die zweite! Die hingehauchten, pudrigen Farben auf der embossten Pergamentblüte kommen auf der weißen Karte wahnsinnig gut zur Geltung. Ich bin begeistert!
