Variations of Botanical Thanks

Enjoyed creating some thank you cards and a birthday cards this week.  I wanted to challenge myself to do variations using one main stamped image.  Going from left to right-- the 1st card was coloring with distress markers on archival ink; 2nd inspired from a blue shirt my grandmother sent me- I colored the card with similar colors using foam tool and blue inks on top of platinum embossing; 3rd- celebrate is done with white embossing powder and distress/spritz coloring- love how soft it turned out.  Row2- Black embossing powder with distress color/spritz, and last platinum embossing with distress color/spritz.  The words were all die cut with watercolor paper and then colored with coordinating ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I'm very pleased with this batch of thankfulness.
Materials Used: Distress Ink, VersaMark Ink, Black Sparkle Embossing Powder, White Embossing Powder, Clear Embossing Powder, Platinum Embossing Powder, Distress Markers & Mini Mister, Royal Blue Microfine Glitter, Memory Box-Thanks die, Waffle Flower Celebrate die, Stampers Anonymous Botanical Sketch Stamp. 

I also had wanted to try may hand at the Stampers Anonymous Flower Garden Set-- I grunge up the rose and yellow palate and used Gold Embossing Tinsel on the Memory Box- thanks.  I love the gold and pink combo.
