Vellum...a real challenge!
For the Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS, Toni has asked us to use vellum. I love the soft look of vellum, but DON'T like the way ink smears easily (wonder how I know?)! Thankfully, an eraser took care of the smearing. :-) I needed a card for our nurse manager who is retiring end of the month. She's an avid quilter, so knew I wanted to use this gorgeous DP by DCWV. I dug into my CS archives for some Sage Shadow - a really old retired SU color - which matched the print well. Several gallery entries used a frame to adhere the vellum to the base, so I tried it and LOVED the idea! Have to run...time to go to work.
