Vellum Sentiments - Day 26

 
Welcome to Day 26 of our month-long Technique Junkie Newsletter 10 year anniversary bash! Today we are giving away several stamp sets from Firecracker Designs by Pamela, who sent them to me to give away when she decided to pursue other interests.

Today's card uses the Vellum Sentiments Technique from the August 2011 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. The swan in the background was colored using Copic Markers. This is the stack we are giving away:

To win this stack of stamps, simply leave a comment with your email address on this blog post. My random number generator will select one lucky winner on Monday, October 29th. Good Luck!

Congratulations to Nancy Potkay, the winner of thes stamps!

I love the look of the swan, so soft and beautiful, behind the vellum and sentiment, this technique is so wonderful. My Mother passed away on Tuesday and I think I will use this technique on her Memorial Cards with my favourite picture of her in the background and her favourite hymn on the vellum over top.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to win these wonderful stamps.

Blessings,
