Vellum week: day 2 with Gio

Gio day today, with another calendar to inspire you. Beautiful subtle colours and some lovely flowers and background made with vellum, our product of the week. 
Let us know what you think... 

I stamped on a piece of vellum using the Katzelkraft unmounted rubber stamps - Art-Nouveau and Jet Black Archival Ink. I cut it and coloured it using several Distress inks with a detailer Zig BrusH2O Waterbrush.

To make the background I cut a piece of vellum to the right size then I embossed it using the Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folders - Daisy Blast and Paisley Palooza Set. I brushed over it three different Dreamweaver metallic F/X: Kiwi, Glacier lake and Pink blush. 
Tip: to fix the metallic powder I sprayed a matte sealer.

I glued the stamped image to the background along with a flower made of scrap of vellum, two Vintaj Charms painted with the Victorian Gable Vintaj Patina kit and the month.
