Vellum Challenge

Hello Everyone, Kimx here with the latest challenge, but first I would just like to thank you all for entering last time. Don't forget to stop back next Friday to find out the winners.

This is my first time as host here at the Stamp Man, and I have chosen Vellum as my theme.

I would like to see Vellum in any shape or form.

Please tell me how you have used it on your project, just in case I need a bit of help if it is less than obvious, you know just how subtle vellum can be lol.

I love vellum, in fact I thought it might be fun to see if I can add vellum to as many of my projects as possible over the next fortnight, so why not stop by my blog and see what I have come up with.

As usual the top prize is £10 to spend at The Stamp Man.

Of course don't forget all the other lovely people on our team, so now it's over to them.
