Well, when I saw that my friend, Silke, was hosting this week's Tuesday Flourishes challenge (FLLC04) I knew I had to play along. Well, I try to play along each week, but made an effort for Silke!
And this card WAS an effort. The challenge you ask? TO USE VELLUM! Yick! This medium is so tricky to use. I stamped on it, which may have been my downfall. It seems like ink never dries on vellum and I must have had to do the stamping at least 4 times and had to redo my image 3 times cause of smearing -rolleyes!
This caused me great frustration and the card didn't turn out like I imagined, but it's done and I like the understated result. I used the Spring Ephemerals and Many Sentiments for this card. The DP is a piece of Ruby Stella by Basic Grey. You can tell in the pic, but I painted the flower blooms with Angel Wings Shimmerz.
