ATCAS ~ Vellum

Hi there!

It is time to show you my second card as guest designer at Addicted to CAS!

This time the challenge is to use vellum !



Vellum is so versatile!

I focused on the beautiful effect you can achieve by tearing , layering , as well as using both the right and 'wrong' side of it!

I used 2 different colors... dark blue and the lovely 'iris iridescent' .

The  'hello' was cut with my Silhouette, and I was pleasantly surprised by the way the machine cuts such a delicate medium.


The 'hello' is  a free cutting file I found here!

A BIG thanks to the team at ATCAS for having me as guest designer! I had a lot of fun!



 ... and a BIG thanks for visiting me today!

Joe, vrou, jy weet hoe mal is ek oor vellum, so hierdie kaartjie is so in my kraal!!! Pragtige kreatiewe gebruik van die vellum - die geskeurde randte is so treffend!! Die blou-pers basis is lieflik en ek's mal oor daai stunning 'hello'. Pragtig afgerond met die gekleure steentjies!!! Baie kreatiewe stukkie werk!!!

Groete en 'n lekker naweek, hoor!!!!
