Large Vellum Flower

The current Pin-Sights Challenge on Ellen Hutson's blog has inspired me to finally break open my Mondo Magnolia stamp set!  

Stamps: Essentials by Ellen (flower and sentiment)
Other: Washi tape (Recollection), Spectrum Noir Markers, various sequins, white embossing powder (Recollection)

I white embossed the flower twice on vellum, colored the back side with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, and cut the flowers out. The metallic washi tape matched the colors even if it's hard to see in the picture. Even though it's a large flower I think the vellum makes it look quite delicate.
