This card is beautiful. Did you color on the front of back of the vellum? Did you use anything to set the color?

Over in the U.K. these are pansies - not violets at all, at all.
But whatever they are they are beautiful....the colouring is just lovely and the card is a little beauty with it's Lily of the Valley die cut. Love it.

Donna K

I think of this flower as a pansy or an African Violet - they are so similar. This is one of my ALL TIME favorite sets and your card is is absolutely stunning. I can't wait to try this on vellum - so soft and beautiful. The new dies are such a bonus - can't tell you how many violets I have cut out!


Your card is so very pretty! It just screams spring.


This is just lovely. They are so light and airy and your coloring is perfect. Violets are special to me too. Thank you for your fabulous work!!

Betsy these are just gorgeous! Love the vellum idea for the flowers and can't wait to try it once I get the dies! :) I am spoiled too! LOL!

Wow, such a beautiful card! I never would have thought to use vellum. I look forward to the first violets of spring every year. (I also love pansies...I think violets and pansies are related) Corrine Ann


Those violets are so beautiful!! I would LOVE if you made a MIM video where you show us how you colored them.:)


I use an airbrush to get this same effect. Not the copies airbrush, I use a real airbrush. You can use any ink refills using jus a drop or two. India inks are my favorite airbrush medium. India inks are so vibrant. If I use distress ink, I add 3 drops of distilled water to each drop. Multiple passes with the airbrush allows unlimited shading. It's quick and easy.
