It’s All About Detail

As you’ve seen in other posts, this is my art side coming out. Veterinary Dentistry is the arts and crafts of veterinary medicine.

This post is part of a series started many months ago in regards to card creations we are using in the office (and showcasing my creative outlet).

In the class, “Beautiful Details,” additional colored details were added to each card. The time and artistry of each card was impressive. I prefer not to spend this much time coloring so this is certainly not my thing but watching the videos was also inspiring.

I decided to attempt to create a card similar to the soft daisy on vellum for a wedding. The bride’s colors are navy and white with the added touch of natural greens. The bouquet was stamped in Versamark and embossed with clear powder onto vellum card stock.

For the reverse side I laid down base color with Altenew’s artist markers, then began to add colored pencils.

Using a stylus over a thin sponge, I drew onto the vellum card stock to dry emboss making the sprigs in the bouquet stark white.

My colored pencil work resulted in grey roses not white.

While they are fine, they did not look good on my finished card, so I moved the colored vellum panel to some patterned paper to create a separate card. I replaced the bouquet with a simple silver embossed one.

The organza ribbon was stamped with Staz On to add the sentiment.

Here are my finished cards in my preferred layout.

If you are the recipient of one of these cards from my office, I hope it brightens your day!
