Sugar Creek Hollow challenge --Vellum

Over at Sugar Creek Hollow this week the challenge is to use Vellum. Here's a card that I did using Vellum for the music sheet. I stamped the Christmas Carol with Archival ink on vellum and dried with heat tool ( have to be careful that the vellum doesn't burn ) I then tore around the edge and inked with DI vintage photo. The image is from the LaBlanche Christmas collection which I stamped with Memento ink on the LaBlanche speciality paper ,BG was sponged with DI's and image colored with the cut and dry nibs and DI. Liquid applique was used to create the snow on the branches.
This was my first time using the LaBlanche special cardstock and I just love how easy it is to blend inks . I certainly will be using it again .
Thanks for looking

Marilyn, this is simply gorgeous!! I love the way your sheet music curls and flutters behind that beautiful image. I have a couple of LaBlanche stamps, but not any Christmas ones. Need to check out the paper, tfs and thanks for playing with us at Sugar Creek Hollow.
