Daisy Note in Watercolor

9/16/2017 Update: Top Three Award Winner at Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch #336.
Just how many floral stamps does one crafter need? This is a set I've had for a while and have not used until now. I did not purchase the coordinating die set and the Brother Scan 'n Cut sliced a few of the flowers so I ended up stamping and masking this center flower, stamping the other two directly onto the paper and then fussy cutting before watercoloring.
The flowers were adhered to the vellum, which has die cut wavy edges and the vellum was backed with foam tape and popped up onto the cantaloupe cardstock. The cantaloupe cardstock was adhered to the white card base covered with a black cardstock mat and a white ribbon. The sentiment was stamped and die cut and the droplets added. The inside was decorated with a coordinating stamp and watercolored.
