Parchment Craft Challenge with SweetStamps.com

Hello!  There is a lot of excitement happening today at SweetStamps.com... First there is a new release of Artsy Fartsy Stamp Sets... and these are def. my FAV. release to date!!!  I LOVE the sentiments and images!  Check them out here.  Then we are also combing our weekly challenge with our Monthly Technique Challenge: Anything Goes with Parchment Crafting! woo hoo!  So get out the vellum and get crafty!!!  Here is what I have created for this challenge:

Supplies Used:

I love how this turned out!  I started by heat embossing my images and sentiment in fine detailed white embossing powder.  I then flipped it over and when over the flowers with a stylus against a mouse pad. While still having the backside faced up I colored around the floral images with colored pencils.  I flipped it back over, adhered it to patterned paper and added some rhinestones.

* I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Let's be clear

Hope you will give parchment and try!  As always there is a $20 gc waiting for the winner of this challenge!
Happy Crafting!

I love how this turned out too - so brave to use that PP but the contrast with the nature stamps is wonderful. Love the chevron with it too.

so beautiful, Lisa...wonderful colors for your papers. i wouldn't have thought that the images would have turned out so clearly with a patterned background, this looks marvelous.
