PP56 Pretty Hello

 For today’s card, I wanted to try adding vellum flowers for that “oh-so-sweet look”.  The Paper Players Clean and Simple (CAS) sketch challenge #56 allowed it to work perfectly in the layout.  I love CAS! 

I also added vellum over the stamped image in the center to soften it.  The shapes were cut with the Bojo Blossoms and Bird Builder punches and then sponged with ink.  To give them some texture, I shaped them around a stylus.

    Cindy, using vellum to soften the background is one of my favorite tricks. You are right, it does soften the overall effect and give it an etheral quality. I love that you did it on this card. the flowers are a lovely addition.
