June CASEplorations: CASEing Virginia Lu

I'm thrilled to be CASEing a card from the dear Virginia Lu.

Hers
Mine


I chose to start with vellum that had polka-dots
  • Stamped my images and embossed them in gold as Virginia had done
  • I then colored the backside of the vellum as Virginia suggested so as not to cover up the gold embossing. ( this makes a LOVELY soft wash of color show through the front side.)
  • I DID add a bit of extra color carefully to the front for depth.
  • The rest I pretty much copied from the original card...sentiment ,twine and circle dies with sequins.


Virginia's original card can be seen at her post here .
Hop over to CASEplorations and join the CASE fun!
A perfect  opportunity to CASE a card from a MASTER card maker: Virginia Lu!

Thanks for stopping by.
