Creative Belli #125 Use Acetate or Vellum

 The Belli Challenge for the next two weeks is to use Acetate or Vellum.
  I made an ATC for the challenge. I used a digital image from McMahon Five Designs called Halloween Witch, and the sentiment is from Create with TLC.  The DSP is Heidi Grace and I have added a Zig Zag stitch around the outside edge of the ATC.  I colored the image with Copic markers and added Sakura Gelly Roll pen sparkly accents.
 Do you remember back when when SU sold that swirly vellum?  Am I dating myself?  I thought it would go along with the Halloween theme.

The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!

For ideas and inspiration, check out the DT creations:

Also, if you upload a card to any galleries online  to Splitcoast , PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC125 in the keywords section.


Thanks for stopping by today- you have two weeks to join us!

Yes, I remember the swirly vellum, also some with dragonflies. I'm still hoarding a small piece of that. Sure wish they'd bring it back.

Your card reminds me of why I save those small pieces of special stuff, the vellum in the corner adds just the right touch. Great card, thanks for sharing
