MIM #159

I was thrilled when I saw the video for this weeks Make it Monday at Papertrey Ink as my first love, crafting wise, was patchwork. I still have a bundle of flyers a friend, who was a paperboy, collected for me as they were the perfect weight to act as backing papers.
So the opportunity to transfer this technique to a card was one I couldn't wait to have a go at.
In my excitement to assemble the card I didn't wait quite long enough to allow the "wet paint" sentiment to dry on the vellum!
I used PTI cover plates Deco to frame my "quilt", and  Harlequin for the "quilting".
The papers are all scraps from Teresa Collins Vintage collection.
