The Stamp Man - Vellum

My first week off and I have so enjoyed getting inky and experimenting again.

This is my DT piece for the Stamp Man this week which is to use vellum. Jill kindly sent us some bits and pieces including this stamped image on blue vellum, so it became my focal image for this card. 

The pink flower is also vellum which I made from 3 circles. I think I might do a tutorial for it at some point, although I guess most people will know how to make it..

The butterfly is made from 2 Martha Stewart punches punched in white card and distress stains then a glitter embossing powder added.

Please come and join us and show us how you use vellum on your projects. As always Jill will be givng the winner a £10 on-line voucher for her shop.

Supplies -
Tim Holtz - Vintage Shabby Paper Stash
Distress inks - Victorian Velvet, vintage photo, walnut stain
Distress Stains - Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Walnut Stain
Embellishments - mosaic tiles, tiny tag, vintage brad, vellum flower, lace, doiley
Martha Stewart butterfly punches

Have a wonderful Easter and happy crafting.

Hi Brenda,
I'm glad you are enjoying your time off. I'm ready for a break but unfortunately don't have one coming up... oh well.

Your card looks great. I like the ATC a few posts back. Now that I think of it - I enjoy all your projects!!!

The baked french toast is yummy. You should try it. It's great when you're having company and don't want to be stuck in the kitchen cooking while they are there. Brunches are so much fun.
