Papertrey Ink MIM #210: Using Vellum to Soften Patterns

Sending Hugs CardI'm not sure how the Papertrey designers keep on comin' up with more fantastic techniques, but here's a great one from Lizzie! Using vellum to soften patterns has so many applications, and Lizzie has created three bee-u-ti-ful example cards for MIM #210!  Since Mother's Day is just around the corner, I decided to use the Text Block: Mom die, more of Brushed Blooms and some dotted vellum. I'm sure that I'll be giving this lovely technique another go (and so should you)!

Great card design! reminds me of Betsy's design tips a couple weeks ago of using one ink color with a stamp set to make your background, a lovely effect. The dotted vellum is perfect.

I would never have thought of using dotted vellum (maybe 'cause I'm hoarding mine?), but I love the effect of it on that gorgeous red stamping!
