This week’s Just Add Ink challenge is to use the photo up on their blog as inspiration.
I loved the colours, and decided to use those as my inspiration. Since it’s the middle of winter here, some bright yellow is nice and cheery.
My card uses one of the printed Vellum sheets that comes with the Magnolia Lane Memories and More card. I have coloured the Vellum on the reverse side using Stampin’ Blends, in Old Olive and Daffodil Delight – light Daffodil Delight for the petals of the flowers and the dark one for the centres.
The Vellum is simply layered onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock to help the colours pop, but because the colouring is on the reverse side of the vellum, it stays lovely and subtle.
I love the effect!
I have left the card as simple as possible, wanting the flowers to be the focus of the card.
Then I’ve added a little flower which was fussy cut from one of the other sheets of Vellum in the pack, to the inside of the card.
I have heaps more projects to share now that I have some goodies from the new catalogue.
Hope you have a crafty weekend – mine will be!

Beautiful colouring and gorgeous colours. I love this magnolia design it makes a stunning card.
What beautiful use of the vellum sheet Christina. I love the flow of all the softly coloured magnolias across the card! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim
Your magnolias look fabulous in mass effect over your card, Chris! You have coloured them beautifully too and I love the subtleness you’ve achieved from colouring on the reverse side of the vellum sheet. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink.
Beautiful card, Chris. Wonderful use of the vellum – the hints of colours suit the Magnolia image perfectly. Thanks for sharing your lovely creation with us at Just Add Ink this week. xOx Jackie
