Vellum at The Stamp Man

It's time for the next challenge over at The Stamp Man and this time we want to see what you can do with Vellum ! As usual there is the prize of a £10 voucher to spend in The Stamp Man online store.

I cut a tag using the TH tag die and blended DI over it. I then ripped strips of TH Tissue Wrap and glued it to the tag. I then tore a strip of Kraft Glassine paper and scrunched it up, flattened it out and attached it to the tag with some brads.
The main image is a Stampendous stamp called I Love Paris. I've blended DI over it and then flicked water at the image and painted the flowers with Tattered Rose DI. The frill down the side is made from TH Tissue Tape.

I blended Vintage Photo DI over the Vellum and then stamped with Coffee Archival ink the text stamp from the TH French Marketplace stamp set. The flower is cut using the TH Mini Tattered Florals die and added a button to the centre.

I hope you get chance to join us in this challenge.
