PTI Make it Monday #210 ~ Using Vellum to Soften Patterns

The Challenge:



I dig out the old paper pad I had and haven't use for a long time and work with the fairly new PTI dies


after I painted the chipboard bird, I decided to give some polka dots using the following stamp set


this PTI stamp set is pretty old but I think I use it quite a lot


I only realized when I see this photo, that I should stamp on the sentiment as well since I have the matching stamp set still in it's case un-touch!


that's what happened when you shop too much
