Boho Backgrounds

I am very lucky to have such generous friends who shower me with lovely gifts come birthday time. I thought I'd make some thank you cards for them.

I saw this colour challenge on Colour Q this week and thought I would try out the stained glass window technique on some vellum using one of the Boho Backgrounds stamps. I kept it all quite "clean & simple". I stamped the image onto vellum paper, coloured in with markers on the back then added a rhinestone in the middle. I hand drew the borders on the cardstock and the vellum.
Materials used:

Stamps: Boho Backgrounds, One of a Kind (sentiment)

Ink: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise marker, Tangerine Tango marker, green marker (nonSU), Basic Black marker

Paper: Whisper White CS, Vellum paper

Accessories: Turquoise Rhinestone (non SU)


  1. This is a great CAS design, Alison! Love the way you colored on the back of the vellum for a soft look. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ!

  2. Lovely card, Alison, fab CAS card! Your colors look nice on the vellum, thanks for joining us at the ColourQ this week.

  3. I love the simplicity of the layout that you used. It really makes the Boho stamp stand out, as well as the colours. A really nice card.

  4. Great clean & simple card...thanks for joining us at the colourQ this week!

  5. This is just stunning! I love the image and it's beautifully coloured.
