Technique Tuesday Feature is Back!

Hello friends!
I hope you are having a great Tuesday! 
I took a break from featuring Technique Tuesday products on a Tuesday and guess what!?
I am back with Technique Tuesday feature again.
Technique Tuesday - Greenhouse Society Collection - Clear Acrylic Stamps - Strawberry
Technique Tuesday - Clear Acrylic Stamps - Strawberry

This card may look simple enough, but thee are a few steps/technique involved.

1: masking the background: I used the die cut as a MASK and then stamped the background in green.  
2. white-embossing and die-cutting on vellum): using heavier vellum (40lbs) seems to do the trick for me. It doesn't warp and is sturdy enough to use as it is.
3. coloring: I applied alcohol ink/markers on front and back of the vellum (mostly on the back).
4. use colored card stock to create the matching sentiment.
5. it's all in the details: splatter, droplets and sequins....you know, the little things.

I did strawberry-picking in my local farm many times before and noticed that the flowers are usually white with yellow center and that is how I colored the strawberries.
thanks #1

I love the airiness of vellum gives and it is aptly perfect for a summer card.

Wish I could pluck one of your strawberries right off the vine. Your card is delicious. The stamping on the background is the perfect thing to frame the embossed and colored vellum. Beautiful.
