Sweet Stamps Parchment Challenge

Hope everyone has been enjoying the Sweet Stamps
Challenges.  Today is Tuesday and that
means it is time for a new challenge at Sweet Stamps.
The new challenge is Parchment, you have
to use vellum on your creation.

I stamped the stamp onto  vellum with white dye ink
and heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder.
I then flipped my vellum over onto the back side
and used the stylus' to trace/draw inside the lines
to get the whitish look, using the Etching/Embossing Mat.
  I used my memento markers in 
purple, yellow and green to color in the 
Pansy Flowers on the back side.

Here's a closer look at my Pansy Scroll Frame:

Stacey from Sweet Stamps has a
great step by step
tutorial HERE and a video HERE.

Please give it a try and you'll be amazed at how this 
technique looks, I was....  It
looks harder than it really is.
I love this look, so be on the lookout
for a few more cards using this Parchment craft.

Here is another card that I created also using the 
Parchment Craft:

Here is a close up of the top butterfly:

And here's a picture of the side view of my 
card so you can see the dimension.

So come and join us for this week's new Challenge at
Sweet Stamps Blog.
All that is required is to use Vellum on your creation
and if you use a Sweet Stamps Stamp, you
will get a 2nd entry into the drawing for a $20
shopping spree at Sweet Stamps.
