Bring Some Vellum Joy! Timeless Tuesday 251


Welcome friends to this weeks Timeless Tuesday challenge!

We have another Guest Designer this week - Greta Hess!  Greta is challenging to whip out an old favorite to be used on your card or project... Vellum! 

Vellum has many uses and I always love the look it gives to soften an image or look of a card. I thought it would be fun and nice to used last months release of Handmade Snowflakes to be the focal of the vellum.

I used some blue cardstocks from the Color Made Easy collection of True Blues and some basic white.  The white panel in the center was used to stamp the different snowflakes throughout using various hues of blue Memento ink in Danube Blue, Summer Sky, and Nautical Blue.  I then layered some vellum over that and secured it with some metal brads.  Some sheer and stitched ribbon was added along with a mini metal tag, which was photographed terribly! The tag says Happy Holiday and it almost looks greenish yellow. I stamped directly onto the vellum with some Staz On ink the sentiment and finished it with a few rhinestones to complete the look. 

We hope you join us for this fun challenge but not before you head off to check out the other fabulous creations made by the Timeless Tuesday Team!
