Timeless Tuesday...Vellum



Well today is Timeless Tuesday @Flourishes and we are asked to use vellum. Well me and vellum are not the best of friends so I had to struggle with this but pushed myself to join in. I stamped my vellum with the rose image and heat set it and then did my coloring on the backside( the paper's backside, not mine). Added my leaf-like flouish thing a ma jig and the thank you along with some bling. I then decided to just quit this project and call it a day. As I said...me and vellum are not best friends and I'm sure it shows.Rose is from Stampin Up, thank you is Flourishes, and leafy is from Pretty Poppies.You should check out this new line of paper and stamps at Mike's called Pretty Poppies as it is dirt cheap and really quite nice.

OH! A pink rose! I have a thing for pink roses of the antique variety. You and the vellum did just fine, backsides and all. You are so good about cracking me up. Think Ellie gets her abilities from you ~ she's hilarious AND artistically talented, too.

I think this is very elegant (and your post about the paper's backside made me giggle).
