CAS Mix Up June Reminder: Embossed Vellum

Susan is hosting the Embossed Vellum Challenge.  All the DT cards are Stunning!

You still have until the 24th to play along.

Here is my card using Heat and Stylus Embossed Vellum,
Stamping,  Die Cutting and Watercoloring with Zigs.
I used my new Gorgeous Penny Black Country Charisma stamp set and
Country Charisma cut out set, which I had NBUS (never before used stuff)!

I used SU Vellum Cardstock,  which is a bit thicker than regular vellum.
I heat embossed the stamped images using Versa Magic Cloud Nine and Heat Embossed
with Wow White Bright EB Powder.

Then die cut the 2 flower stems and pitcher and went Wow!
Then the fun really began...

Turned images over and watercolored with Zig Clear brush pens. Dried quickly.

Turned the die cut images over onto piercing mat and used SU stylus to carefully
go over the heat embossed areas to add additional puffy texture.

I used a craft knife to add 2 small slits at top of pitcher to slip the stems thru.
Used SU Fine Tip Glue Pen to secure stems.

I used SSS "Postage Stamp Edge Frame" to die cut layer of vellum that had colored flakes
and attached to die cut White 100# CS.
Next added stamped Penny Black "Smile All Seasons" sentiment.

Placed die cut images on background using Fine Tip Glue Pen on pitcher,
then added a few SU mini dimensionals to flowers to pop up.  
Attached to SU Very Vanilla Thick cardbase and Done!

I Loved the texture and elegance of the bouquet using vellum.
Thank you Susan for your awesome challenge.
I am going to be using vellum more often now:-)  Hugs..
