Vellum Vase

I'm sharing a card for Altenew's June Inspiration Challenge. The colours are quite earthy and would be great for a masculine card, but I challenged myself to make a feminine card this tme.

To begin I stamped the leaves and vase directly on the white card. Next I stamped more leaves and the flower and fussy cut the images. I stamped the vase a second time on vellum, heat embossed and fussy cut.  I recently discovered Nuvo Aqua Shimmer  Glitter Gloss pens and blended the Zig Markers on the flower and and the vase. It's a pity the picture didn't pick up the shimmer - it is so beautiful! 
Stamps:- Altenew 'Versatile Vases', 'Leaf Clusters' and 'Pen Sketched Flowers'

I'm sharing my card at the following challenges:-
