Rebel Challenge #7: Frosty - Use Vellum

Thanks to everyone who played our last Rebel Challenge! It was great to see all the great ways you came up with to use grids!

This month, we've got another fun assignment for you! This time we are asking you to go


1) You can use any products to participate in this challenge. You do not have to use Rogue Redhead Designs products but it would be fabulous if you did!

2) Your submission must include some stamping.

3) Please read the directions for the challenge. We like to add a twist here and there. Your submission must include vellum in some way.

4) Links that are not to a single post (ie only to a general blog post) will not be accepted.

5) All submission posts need to include a link back to this challenge to be eligible for the challenge prize.

One challenge winner will be drawn randomly from the qualified submissions for a $15.00 US voucher at the Rogue Redhead Designs Store.

This challenge will end on February 5, 2012. The winner will be announced on February 8, 2012 and will have until March 8, 2012 to claim their prize.

Here's some easy ideas to get you started!

You can create a frosted panel like the one below. This card is all about layers. The colored image was covered by a layer of plain vellum, stamped with a sentiment. The layer of vellum was then framed by a piece of patterned paper.

You could also try a vellum overlay like this simple card.

This card has a simple window, lined with vellum which has been stamped with a sentiment.

Through the frosted window you can see a hint of the bright flowers inside. Once the card is opened, all the vibrant color shines through.

You can also use vellum for some interesting spotlighting and layering options.

To create a reverse spotlight, I punched out portions of the vellum to reveal the full colored image.

To give a feel of water, I layered the vellum at the bottom of the oval after lightly sponging it with Distress Ink.

All together it looks like this:
