Working with Vellum

I hope you are all surviving the wet and windy weather here in the UK. Living on the South Coast is very windy at the moment!

I am sharing a card with you which I have made for Moving With The Times challenge blog. Hazel was kind enough to ask me to join the group. So do pop along an join in with the challenge which this week is to use vellum or parchment.



I was inspired by an article in Craft Stamper to make this card. I stamped onto the parchment and then embossed on the wrong side with a ball tool. Once this was done I blended Antique Linen Distress Ink over the back. The paper is from a beautiful freebie with Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine this month. I used some dyed seam binding and pleated it to decorate.

Other challenges I am entering:
Rhedd and Rosie Challenge - Anything Goes
