PTI MIM #210: Using Vellum to Soften Patterns

Lizzie showed us here how to use vellum to soften those bright patterns from patterned paper or ones we've stamped ourselves. Heidi Swapp Pink Color Shine was staring me in the face asking to be put to use so I sprayed some Stamper's Select White card stock and let it dry. Using Royal Velvet ink, I randomly stamped two images from Reasons to Smile to be covered by vellum. Here's a closeup view:

My next layer is a Tipped Tops Die cut from vellum and adhered underneath the butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies. For cohesiveness to my theme of smiling, I die cut the word "Smile" from SU Elegant Eggplant using Block Alphabet dies and adhered the vellum behind the letters. Here you can see the card in full view. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Vellum and SU Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Royal Velvet and Heidi Swapp Pink Color Shine
Stamps: Beautiful Butterflies and Reasons to Smile
Dies: Block Alphabet, Tipped Tops and Beautiful Butterflies Layers
Other: SU Elegant Eggplant Marker, Glue Dots, Sponge and Foam Tape
