Soft and Bold Under Vellum

I used the new Simon Says Stamp Cosmos Background stamp to make a couple cards.  They were made the same way, but have different looks...just because of color!  The first I used a soft pink...a monochromatic look... to color the cosmos...
 I stamped the large stamp onto a card size piece of vellum...5 1/2"x 8 1/2".  I DID that, so that I could cut some off the bottom, to get just the right panel of these pretty flowers I wanted on my card, and be able to fold and wrap the vellum over the top, to adhere the vellum to the back of the card. I colored on the backside of the vellum with markers...two shades of pink and added the Simon Thanks die in black and layered.  Here's a close up...

The second one was done just like the first, except with red, orange and yellow cosmos, and a white instead of black "thanks"....a much bolder look than the pink:)!...  
 You can notice the clear embossing over the black ink on both gives the cards a textured look, but the color comes from "below"...
Oh how I love coloring on vellum...such fun!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
