Sweet Stamps Challenge- Parchment

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Parchment.

 I know you know my story about meeting Sweet Stamps- it was the demo that Stacey was doing on Parchment that drew me in...I thought, I'll stop back....and I DID come back!  So glad I did- I love the look of the beautiful Parchment images on the Parchment Vellum!
 I stamped in the Parchment White Die ink and embossed in Detail White EP.  I colored the flowers from the back with Shades Die inks- yep- I dabbed the spots on an acrylic block and used the aqua painter to apply the colors. 
 The Flourishy edging-part of the stamp- was embossed from behind using the middle sized tool on a mat. The vellum was trimmed along the outside line of the image and was adhered to the shimmery Purple cardstock from Paper Temptress with Spray Adhesive. I hand cut around all of the scalloped edges- I love the way it looks like fine lace : )  I used the piercing mat and intended on piercing the outside part of the vellum, but liked the way just a border of piercing looked- what do you think?
 The Butterfly is cut from a SweetsDie and the base layer is vellum with Yellow- painted on with Dandelion ink and the Aqua Painter. The top layer is the shimmery purple cardstock again. I added some rhinestones (colored with a Copic marker) to the center of the butterfly and added Sakura Gelly Roll pen to the vellum for more sparkle.
