CC&S - Sketch Week

Hi there everyone and welcome to my newest followers!
At CAS - Colours and Sketches we have a wonderful sketch for you to play along with -
Here is my DT card -
I played around with this sketch for a while and couldn't really decide on what to do with my two white panels. I then had an idea (and I don't even know where it came from) to use vellum. I have never used it before so I don't even know why it popped into my head.
Once I had decided to grab some vellum, I knew the stamp that I wanted to use. This gorgeous image is from a new set called 'Cherish' which is from Inspired by Stamping. I also wanted to keep the monochrome design so I inked the stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered the vellum with a little glue. I actually 'googled' how to attach the vellum before I started because I was worried about the adhesive showing through. Luckily there were good reports about the Tombow Liquid Glue so I gave that a go. It worked a treat!
Now, it's your turn to try out this sketch. Don't forget that you must created a card using the sketch provided and you must include stamping.
Check out the other inspiration from the DT - you will love it!
Thanks so much for looking xx
