Color Inspiration #17 and the July Blog Hop

I am posting this early so I can enter it in Kristina Werners color Inspiration challenge #17 too. I will be back tomorrow with more details about the card for the Papertrey blog hop.
This was the color/inspiration challege.








This is what I came up with























Tonight is the Papertrey July Blog Hop
The challenge this month was to do something with Vellum. I got the directions and the template for the bottom half of the dress here but I embossed the flowers from the Beautiful Blooms set with white embossing powder onto some vellum I already had and then colored the open parts of my images with Copic markers R85 and RV29 instead of just stamping on it. When I was done with that I drew the template for the top half of the dress and cut it out of the vellum then I embossed and colored it the same way I did the bottom half of the dress. Next I added a piece of 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon that I colored with my YG91 copic maker to the waist and added a belt buckle with my white gel pen. The Regal Rose layer was embossed with the script cuttlebug folder. The ribbon on the left side is 5/8 white grosgrain ribbon that was colored with my YG91 copic Marker. The flower was colored with Copic Marker RV29. I also used Jen Delmuro's Saturday sketch this week for the layout. That's it. Hope you like it and it inspires you to make something like this with Vellum too! Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.
