Hi Metty, you could certainly try this one other colors of cardstock or vellum.  I typically don't like to pant on vellum as much because thin vellum paper warps quite a bit when you add water, but the thicker vellum cardstock doesn't as much.  it would be interesting to try to see what effect you would get adding the white to an already white vellum or even colored vellum!  I just love it on the Kraft because it really does give the feel of a white washed wood.  Thanks for writing!

Hi Sandy, I will ask Gina about adding the link, but do you have a Pinterest toolbar at the top of your screen?  It's free to download and it allows me to pin anything I want from any page without needing a link.  I just click the pin and then it gives me all the available photos on the page to choose from.   I hope this helps.  I still know and use just the Pinterest basics so I will ask someone about your question.

Thanks everyone for your kind words!  So glad you enjoyed this video and Stately Flowers 7! I have been out of town and just returned, so I will be going through now and answering all the questions posted so far. :)

Hi "Grannymama",  Thanks for writing.  Did you check to see if possibly your volume was up but the Youtube volume was down?  Or vice versa, the Youtube volume was up but computer volume was down?.  Often one of these resets to low or mute for me when I watch things so i have to adjust, but when I watch my own videos I can blast my voice so I actually worried I might be talking too loudly for everyone!  So it shouldn't be a problem with how it was recorded or the mike picking up.  Please try that and I hope it helps.

Love this one suggestion - speak up.  I had my volume up and still hard to heard.

Hi Melanie,

I love this card and the technique. Please would you put a link to Pintrest. I would like to pin this card to my board.

Thank you so much.
