Coloring On Vellum

Today I saw a challenge that is right up alley so to speak.
It's at Mod Squad and and the challenge is to 
'Color Your Vellum'.
If you visit here often you will know how I love to do that that!

For this card I used a Tutti Designs Stained Glass Bird die.
 I love these dies and this is one of the ways I use them.

I had bought some Ken Oliver Stick It Sheets which are perfect
for an outline die like this,
makes it so easy to then stick it down on the vellum.
In fact, I love them so much 
I went back to Dies R Us and bought TWO more packs, lol!

Then I just flip the piece over and colored with Copics.
You can use other markers, but I like the softness of the Copics.

I added a pretty designer paper underneath and a twine bow,
pretty easy to mail!!
