Be a designer of dreams in vellumfor the stampman...

Hey there,
Well I was thrilled to have found out that I have won the stamp man for the bingo challenge, last time thanks so much for picking me!!! so here is my vellum entry for this fortnights challenge , this was a challenge for me as i very very rarely use vellum:
I started with some Wendy vecchi arts parts, Wendy vecchi stamps and some distress inks .It is ages since I have played with these art parts and decided to have a go...
I started by inking the atc with broken china, drying with heat tool, as I am a teensy bit impatient and then colouring again..I repeated this and then stamped over this with large background stamp in archival blue and then picket fence distress stain...then spritzed, dried and re inked with broken china. The scalloped parts were inked with broken china and the sentiment stamped on one with black archival.

I edged these pieces with pewter gleams made by crafty notions. Then onto the vellum....I steered by stamping the flower in archival blue, blasting with heat gun..for good measure and then colouring with broken china.Once dry, another quick blast...I over stamped in picket fence distress stain...love this stuff!!!

the leaves were stamped in archival ink on vellum.
To complete the piece I added two of my favourite little bottles, and two pen nibs for stems, from my stash.
The centres of the vellum flowers we some resin blooms from stash.
I am entering this for the following competitions:
