Did you know that we are celebrating our love and admiration for Essentials by Ellen by Ellen Hutson LLC this week with inspiration, challenges and giveaways?  Today is Day 4 and it is another excellent day.  Hope you are having as much fun as we are!

Ellen Hutson LLC is so amazing that not only are they are giving away prizes and have a special shopping discount, but their design team is playing along all week with our challenges.  You will not want miss any moment so check them out by CLICKING HERE.

Today our challenge is: TRANSPARENT!  Use vellum, acetate, glassine and/or other transparent mediums and products to create a project.

I love vellum so I wanted to use some for this challenge.

I cut out Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Bold Blossom Stand-Alone by Julie Ebersole twice from vellum and twice from white cardstock.  On the vellum flowers I sprayed them with pink spray dabbing off any excess which gave the a pale pink and curled it up for dimension.  I sprayed the vellum leaves with gold spray.  I layered the vellum and cardstock flowers and leaves only attaching them in a few places to keep them from being flat and perfectly aligned.  On a panel I added some light green Distress Inks using Scenery: Classic Diagonal Creative Screenings.  I placed the flowers and leaves on the diagonal stripe panel and added some gold glitter enamel dots to the centers of the flowers.  I flicked some of the pink and gold sprays to the green striped panel.  I added the die cut "hello" from The Big, the Bold, and the Happy Cutaways in white.  I adhered everything to a slightly larger white card base than the green diagonal stripe panel.

Now for the tantalizingly transparent projects by Keren, Laura and Taheerah of the Talent!  We hope we inspire you to create some Ellen Hutson + Winnie & Walter projects showcasing the transparent!
