xoxo - vellum and distress inks

good morning! 
i thought i'd pop in real quick and share a card i made for a few challenges! 

the current little tangles challenge is all about stencils! and so am i! so i had to play along! :)

and just take a look at this GORGEOUS runway inspired photo inspiration! LOVE it!
greys, and yellows and layers - yes please!!!

now, on to the card, shall we?

eek! i love it! so fun!
i took some patterened paper vellum (it had the light grey bursts on it) and cut it a few times, at different angles, and then layered it all together! i LOVE vellum, and i love the look of stitching, and vellum and stitching ROCK together, so i totally stitched it all together at the top of the card! 

then i used my heidi swapp polka dot stencil to then add even MORE pattern onto the layered vellum! i made went from darker to lighter (going left to right) and i think it adds SO much, and totally mimics the pattern on the dress! (i don't LOVE flower i went circles and sun bursts! lol)

finally i watercolored the sweet song bird image popped it up for dimension! it's hard to tell, but the belly of the bird is a soft blue. and i stamed the sentiment with staz-on ink, also from the my heart sings stamp set! one of my first and faves from neat and tangled! :)

so that's my card! i totally love it!
and i hope it made you smile, and perhaps next time you'll add some distress ink to vellum. LOVE that look! i could do it all day!
