A Blog Named Hero – Vellum

Hello!  The Crafty Nurse here with a little Hero Arts inspiration for the Vellum challenge at A Blog Named Hero.

Vellum can be a bit challenging to use in your card making, but I love the way that it can mute down a bright design for a more subtle mood.  The other question is how do you adhere the vellum without seeing the adhesive?  The way I chose was to use brads. I’m sure you all have some of those in your stash, I know I sure do!

I began by creating a cluster of circles using multiple Hero Arts Shadow Inks.  I heat embossed the Lil’ Inker’s Modern Mehndi stamp for the sentiment and finished off with Hero Arts pearls.

I hope you’ll join us at A Blog Named Hero for our June Vellum Card Challenge!  This month we are collaborating with Lil’ Inker so I’ll be back later this month with more inspiration using their great stamps!

  2. Very pretty. I love the cluster of circles. Great idea, and the vellum does certainly soften the look. Judy should take part in this challenge as she uses lots of vellum.
