SSCB #46 - Anything Goes #2

Earlier this year Serendipity Stamps released a matching stamp and die set called Spring Flower Pops.  I never got around to using them so I pulled them out for this Anything Goes challenge. 
Click here for the details to enter the challenge.

For my first card I clustered the flowers together for a Get Well card.  For both cards I heat embossed the blooms on watercolor paper with Versafine Onyx Black and clear embossing powder.  I die cut and watercolored them the my new ZIG Clean Color Markers and my Wink of Stella clear pen.

You can't tell in the picture but the blooms have a nice shimmer to them.

Still can't see the shimmer in the close up! 

 The finished size is 5" x 5".

My second card has the same blooms colored the same way but on a birthday card.  I dry embossed the background on white to keep the card light but give it some texture.  I heat embossed my favorite birthday stamp from Serendipity.

Another close up of the blooms.  Still can't see the shimmer! 
The finished size is an A-2.

The 50% off Stamp of the month is Veggie Basket Large:
