Hi everyone!!

Not that much time left to join in the fun over at the ATCAS Blog where the code word is 'vellum'.
It's been ages since I last play along at ATCAS , but as someone who absolutely loves to work with vellum, I just had to make a card to enter.

This is the card I have made:


For my card I started off by using drywall tape as a stencil to add texture paste and gesso to a piece of white cs.  When it was dry I used Broken China and Shabby Shutters DI and water on my craft sheet to add some colour .
I sponged my vellum with the two DI to give it some soft colour.  There is a small strip of vellum showing at the top of the main panel - not showing very clearly in the photos.
I've made my flower with vellum and white cs.
Flower and flourish dies by MFT.  Borderpunch by Upikit.
Some black plastic dots round it off.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

So that will be it for now - thanks for the visit!!!

Have a super day!!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards

This is breathtaking, Petra! If you looked up "serenity" in the dictionary, there would be a photo of this card! Your talent never ceases to amaze me!! Hugs, Darnell
