Scallops, scallops everywhere..and not a drop to drink!



What's up Bloggeritas?  Have you ever die cut vellum?  Well, I had not ever done that before.  So, tonight, I used a PTI die and die cut some vellum.  Then, I dabbed some ink on a napkin and stained it purple.  I've shared before that I'm a cheap crafter but, I'm also a lazy one! LOL!  Therefore, I improvise a lot.  I had a napkin handy...why pull out my sponge dauber?  So, anyway...this card is for the CAS-ual Fridays scallop challenge this week.  Check it!





Die cutting vellum has opened my mind up to so many more possibilities!  Give me some tips...how do you use vellum in new ways?

Rochelle, I like how your napkin dying worked out! The gradual shades of lavender are divine. Very soothing and inspiring!

This is beautiful! When I saw the thumbnail in the gallery, I thought you sprayed the scallops! New ways of using vellum? have you tried embossed vellum flowers? Fussy cut all the layers, adhere with foam dots? awesome too!
