Thank You card

I used Altenew's Painted Flower stamp set. I really love this set. It has multi-layered stamps, but they can be used individually like I did with this detail stamp on Tim Holtz' Watercolor Paper with Versafine ink. Then I painted the flowers in with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. The pearlescent vellum is really vintage, I don't have any idea when I bought it or who makes it. It's cut with Papertrey Ink's Mat Stack 1 die with Taylored Expressions "thanks" die that was heat embossed with Rangers Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  The card base is Papertrey Ink's Tropical Teal.

The vellum die cut was adhered to the watercolor by lightly tracing the mat where I wanted it to be in pencil, applying Scotch Vellum Tape to the water color within the pencil lines, erasing the pencil lines and putting the mat on. Putting the vellum tape on the watercolor rather than the vellum makes a world of difference.

Simon Says For the Love of Plants and it's been colored, so I'm entering it in the 30 Coloring Challenge also.
