MIM #121

Colored Vellum Flowers is our challenge at PTI's MIM this week.
Betsy Veldman's tutorial used die cut vellum colored with ink on a Q-tip.
Love this! The results are translucent pieces of loveliness on a card.
Well, it was when she did it!
I still have strawberries in the garden, so I pulled out Strawberry Patch and Strawberry Patch Sentiments stamps and dies.
Summertime and strawberries, a perfect match!
I cut away the center of the Twisted Coverplate, and mounted it on a ripe avocado cardstock, which was stamped with fresh snow.
Vellum sentiment on a double ended banner and a tiny tag.
To color the vellum strawberries, I used Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel, and a bit of Limeaid Ice in the centers of the berries.
The leaves are Limeaid Ice and New Leaf.
Tiny foam dots pop up the berries and the tag.
Always enjoy Betsy's tutorials! Might just have to do another!
