#80 inspired by vellum

I am easily inspired by vellum. I love the stuff. I was one of those folks who was using it when it was "tacky" and out of trend. I was ecstatic once products started popping up using vellum though I haven't bought that many beyond the ones that came with the Studio Calico kits when I still had a subscription. 

I like to use it just plain.

But Lisa's challenge had me thinking outside the box a little and I wanted to find new ways to use it. So I had the perfect excuse to try this technique {here} and make my own vellum embellishments with a little ink and clear embossing powder.

And these are the results -

 although the raised stamped impression is subtle, I love how pretty these images turned out. I had never clear embossed over colored ink. What a genius concept!

 I also created double layers by adding my embossed vellum image over a punched plain vellum circle which I stamped with the phrase 'oh snap'. and a sticker and butterfly finished off my mini-clusters.
another fun fact about this layout is that my "patterned paper" is actually the shopping bag from west elm. I couldn't resist the x's and o's pattern on craft. too darn cute. 

I hope you dug into your stash for some vellum and put it to good use on a page.
