Watercolor Vellum Daisies
by Trina Pham

Hello there.  I have a clean and simple birthday card to share today featuring watercoloring on vellum - vellum diecuts to be exact.  Vellum is a beautiful product, but if you’ve ever tried watercoloring it, you know how much it curls and warps.  However, this isn’t always a bad thing.  On my card, the curling added dimension.


A couple of key points for this technique: use heavy-weight vellum and use as little water as possible.  

The vellum daisies from Daisy Silhouette were watercolored with Zig markers and a water brush, then set aside to air dry.  Bristol paper was used for the remainder of the card.  The frame was die cut with the Rectangle Basics set.  The diamond pattern from Distressed Windham Collage was used to create the “trellis”.  The sentiment from Watching the World Bloom was white heat embossed on black cardstock.  


Assembled the card onto a white top folding card base and Crystal Glaze added to the centers finished off the card.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.







I have never tried watercolouring on vellum, Trina. But after your GORGEOUS idea, I will definitely try it! I lllllove your beautiful card, my friend.

Beautiful daisies, Trina! Love the die cut background and the framing.

Thanks for the tips about watercoloring on vellum, Trina. Like the idea of the natural curling/warping for flower petals, etc. tfs

Brilliant CAS, love how you coloured the daisies! Fabulous design!

Gorgeous card! Will have to try watercoloring vellum after seeing this beautiful card!

Maravilhosas imagens. Muito estimulantes

the daisies look wonderful and love the effect of the water curling the petals. Great frame to go with the perfect flower :)

I love how you added your pretty little watercolored on vellum diecut daisies to an all white textured background. So sweet and pretty. TFS Hugs...

Great card, Trina. LOVE the daisy die.

Lovely vellum daisies, Trina! The vellum texture looks fantastic on the Bristol paper. The white-on-white trellis make a great backdrop. Thanks for the tips about watercoloring on vellum!
