V is for Vellum



As I am off work and the weather is nothing like it was last week (typical!!!), breezy, dark and about to rain, I have spent the day making cards and ironing, not at the same time obviously! Here is my entry for the latest ABC Challenge, which is V is for Vellum. I can't remember where I bought the pale green vellum with gold butterflies but I have had it a long time and seem to recall having it in various pastel colours. Tilda is stamped in Versafine ink and coloured with Pro Marker pens. The gold sentiment was made with my Cuttlebug and matted onto a piece of card cut with stamp edge scissors. The petals were left over from Cuttlebug flowers I cut from papers stamped with a background pattern stamp and I finished the card off with eyelets to attach the vellum to the card blank.

Hi Denise, it seems to be a while since I visited but you've produced some lovely stuff since I was last here. Hope work is going well and thank you for your comment on my blog - yes, I drew the jeans digi stamp myself but the Guardian Angel is from one of Linnie's Cute Daisy May sheets.

This is beautiful. It's amazing how effective vellum can be yet we've all hid it away for so long.
Thanks for joining the ABC challenge this week.

This is a pretty little card. I love the way you've coloured Tilda and the vellum is so pretty too.
