Vellum card - Ruby Rock-it, Pan Pastels and a little help from Helmar

Hi Everyone.  I wanted to share my recent Ruby Rock-it project: a vellum card for Mom. (Might be a little late for Mother's Day, but shouldn't every day be Mother's Day?) ;)

For this card, I made a bunch of flowers and 'greenery' from additional sheets of vellum:

Now, the vellum comes in classic white with silver, so if you want a little colour, you have to add it.  I decided to use Pan Pastels for the colour, and added it to the back of the vellum, to keep it subtle.  Vellum isn't the best surface for pastels, so you need to give it a little help with a coat of workable fixative after you add the colour.  It doesn't make it completely smudge proof on vellum, but it really makes a difference.

This is how it looks from the front:

From there, I just punched out the shapes and adhered with Liquid Scrap Dots for a pretty floral arrangement.  The 'greenery' was adhered with 450 Quick Dry.
