Vellum Coloring and Diffuser Embossing

I created a 3D bouquet of flowers using the Paper Smooches Denims & Daisies stamp set. I embossed the flower on vellum using white powder. I colored the wrong side of the flower, then fuzzy cut it. For the flower wrap, I used the pocket metal die to cut a kraft colored paper. I folded it to create a paper flower wrap. I distressed this with tea dye ink. I cut flower wires, and stuck them in the flower wrap. I applied a small dot of Glossy Accent on the center of each flower, then adhered it to the the flower wires. I was going to try the same technique with the leaves, but the stamp set only came with solid leaf stamp and dotted leaf stamp. The color didn't show through the dotted leaf, so I die cut leaves using vellum, and colored the back of the leaves. I applied the same technique on the sentiment banner. I don't have the Streamers Die so I created my own streamer. 

I dry embossed a white card stock using the doily folder. I used a diffuser to keep the center plain and without impression. I wanted the oval outlined, so I secured the oval diffuser on the oval area, and ran it through my Sizzix again. It created an oval impression on the card to create a break between the embossed and flat areas. 

I used this oval diffuser to cover my oval as I spritz on the embossed area so it is not all plain white. I used a pattern paper as a mat, then adhered it to a white card stock base.

Here is a close-up of the flowers.
