Embossed Flowers

It's been a while since I shared a card here. I got Fall Florals a while back and keep meaning to use the set. I initially started playing around with some die cut flowers, but I just wasn't feeling it. So I decided to take a totally different direction. I stamped the flowers onto watercolour paper using versamark and embossed them with clear powder. Next I really wanted to use my newly acquired distress colours (wilted violet, mermaid lagoon, abandoned coral), so I just started loosely painting over the embossed flowers. I added a greeting from Pretty Poppies. It wasn't feeling quite complete so I found some sequins and added those. 

I dug into my old stash of card stock and used Stampin' Up's Tempting Turquoise and the long retired Orchid Opulence.
