Tiny Flower Garden

I was looking through some old cardmaking books that I was going to get rid of  and there was a section on using vellum.

So I got out my vellum - I hardly ever use it, I don't know why not.

I used a small piece of blue vellum to go behind a diecut frame, then tore it off.  I love torn edges.
Then layered a torn brown scrap for the dirt, and a piece of negative leftover scrap for the grass.  Talk about using up scraps!
I drew veins on the diecut leaves in two colours of green gel pen, one of them sparkly.  Another sparkly gel pen dotted on the sticky-out bits of the flowers.  The dragonfly is punched from a tiny iridescent leftover.

Love it Carol and like you say a nice way to use the vellum we all store, I only use mine to tear for a sentiment, how daft, maybe time for a change,

This is a great design. Love how you have used the vellum-the torn edge is a great idea and works so well with the brown. The way you have placed the flowers and leaves is so creative-love how some overlap the frame. Wonderful card x

Your die cut garden scene is fabulous Carol! Love how you've tied in the vellum! I'm hopeless with trying to 'get rid' of anything...I have so many old magazines, and stamps, and papers, and, and and...LOL

You really need to use your vellum more often Carol - you have rocked this mini garden :)
Stay safe

So sweet! I also love the torn edges on your pretty blue Vellum. I also love the look of a simple Vellum die cut (foliage, heart etc) just shoved into a grouping of die cuts lol Your pretty framed flower garden is delightful! Thanks so much for playing along with us again at The Double D, Scraps Challenge, Donna, DT Member.
