DCD Challenge,

Hi Peeps,
Well what fun I had with the challenge this week lol,
The challenge is to use vellum any way you want,

I must confess I made some thing completely different and didn't like it so dismantled it and made some thing else lol,
the image is stamped with a  white stamp pad, then I embossed the design on the back to raise the image on the front using a ball tool, I added hints of glitter which made the vellum bubble hence my disaster that finished up being dismantled so a word of warning here don't use glitter on vellum lol,
I stuck the vellum to a piece of pink card then added that to a Spellbinders Nestabiliies frame, the gorgeous fairy is a Lily of the Valley stamp which has been coloured with copics, the butterflies were a frebbie from ages ago, pearls from stash,
the frame has a peg behind to make it stand up

This is the original complete with bubbles and all lol, just to show you what not to do he he,

Well hope your having a lovely day where ever you are, it's very dull and damp here, Autumn is certainly calling lol,
Have fun,



Wow Liz this is stunning! Love the way you've placed the LOTV fairy looking into the flowers. The dry embossing on the flowers is totally gorgeous too.
You were very brave sharing your discarded image - we live and learn don't we!!
Hugs, Sylvia xxx
