Colored Vellum Flowers

I did a wonderful fun challenge last night from the Capture The Moment blog
at Papertrey Inks "Make It Monday"
It was so fun and the video showing the "hows" made it so easy to do
you "gotta" take a look at some of the other fab entries, as they are GOR-G-EOUS
 
 
The stamp is stamped with versamark ink on vellum cardstock...
I can't believe I even had vellum cardstock....'but I did, it's one of those things I
"had to have" about a year ago and hadn't a clue what to do with it...lol
This was a fun project and certainly very different.....
and my cardstock I used was one I had already embossed, so it came out of my "stash".....
and can you believe the flowers were colored in with a Q-tip??


 
Supplies used:
Papertrey Ink stamp from "Friendship Jar Fillers"
SU inks and pens:  Apricot Appeal, Poppy Parade, Certainly Celery, Old Olive
SU Vellum cardstock
Versamark and white EB powder
Ribbon scrap
