This week's Challenge #2

I am thrilled that Terri, at Joan's Gardens has offered to donate an Inkadinkado Stamp for this weeks prize for the challenge winner.  Remember, you can enter 3 cards to be eligible.

 Be sure tell all your friends to join us this week too!!!!!

Mihaela created a gorgeous card (you can see it here) that I fell in love with before I had the privilege of getting to know her.  She used tissue paper to make her flowers, which I didn't know at the time.  I used vellum, which gave it a total different look.  I have since starting making some flowers with tissue paper (with Mihaela's help) and I love the look.

I spritz the vellum until slightly damp and then used my embosser pen to make them curl some.

I used distress ink to color white tulle and put it over the paper as I loved the texture that Mihaela used.

Products I used to make this card.
