Ways to Use IT Challenge - WT03 - Thursday challenge
This week's Thursday challenge is to use VELLUM in your cards. I love the soft or classy look of vellum and Mother's Day and wedding season are just around the corner. Please also feel free to post any hints or tips you have for working with vellum.
Also please remember to put WT03 in your keywords section as well as post the link back here so that we can all view your art work and this topic stays bumped up.
I just posted a card this week using vellum. I know this is "cheating" but wanted to give some needing ideas a way to use vellum. I'll get something else posted since I plan to use vellum for my class that I'm having on Monday night.
Tip: When I'm using vellum, I like to attach it to the card by eyelets, brads or ribbon. I'm still looking for a tape that is not visible thru the vellum. I've tried several with not much luck.
Here are a few of the cards I've made with vellum during the past few days the forums have been down. I love the way vellum can be used to mat something you are having a hard time finding a matching color for and it's great for stamping and embossing on.

Thanks for the awesome vellum reference! My head is swimming already today!! I'll see what I can do with this challenge!!
100 things made in 100 days: 1/100 We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.
Glad you found this challenge! Thanks for posting all those cards, they look great. We start another challenge tomorrow and hope you can join that as well. Hopefully more people will join in with the easier forum format.
