I'm So Lucky to Call You My Friend

Are you feeling sketchy? Create with Connie and Mary has a sketch challenge this week and we sure hope you will play along with us. It's easy. It's fun!

Here is the sketch.

This is my interpretation of the sketch: a combination of Sheltering Tree stamp set and the new Sprinkles of Life stamp set.
Once I stamped the bare tree, grass and flowers, I added an overlay of vellum on which I had stamped the tree's foliage. 

Because vellum is not very porous, it takes longer for the ink to dry. There are a few ways to help the process: heat it with a heat tool or allow it to air dry or blot it dry. 

Another thing to keep in mind with vellum is adhesive may show through. To get around this, I added adhesive in strategic places such as under the little bird and under the punched sentiment. 

Here is a close up so you can see the vellum.

You may be wondering why I went with a green background and not blue, especially with clouds. It just looked more cohesive :)

The vellum panel makes this so special and unique! Love it! I also love the mix of Sprinkles of Life and Sheltering Tree, great idea!

What a beautiful card! I love your use of vellum across both panels and how the embossing folder on the background echoes the leaves on the tree! This could be used for so many occasions!
