Handmade Vellum Flowers

I feel good...
I am finally getting into the challenges again...
I have only been able to do a few...
and I love to do them...
 
I haven't done a Joan's Gardens challenge for quite sometime...
the challenge this week is:
Make 3 Vellum flowers
colors golden yellow and violet
mesh or tulle
and stencil on paper
and an item purchased from Joan's Gardens
Whew!!!  Now that is what I call a challenge!!!
 
 
I adhered my "tulle" to my cardstock with a spray adhesive I just recently purchased
from Joan's gardens called E6000...
it sticks real good, but you have to work fast as it dries very fast!!
Then I used some Martha Stewart Stencils and Tim Holtz Tea Dye Ink
and stenciled right over the tulle for my background
I added a beautiful piece from Graphic 45's Secret Garden paper pad
(also purchased from Joan's Gardens.
 
My vellum flowers were cut out with a TH Alterations Tattered Flower die
(also purchased from Joan's Gardens)
I edged them with stickles for some "glitz".
The leaves are from a Heartfelt die and covered with a "new to me" product
by Art Anthology called Dimensional Crystal in a "Pickle" color
it is the neatest stuff and I have it on order from Joan...
