Bristol & Watercoloring With Oxides

I've just recently found how well distress oxides play with bristol vellum and I can't get enough.  It leaves such a smooth clean surface as opposed to watercolor paper with it's toothiness. I'm submitting this one for the Altenew May Inspiration Challenge.  I realized I have this gorgeous little stamp that I haven't had a chance to use yet and just wanted to play with it.

To create this A2 sized landscape card I used some bristol vellum and inked the large backrground 'Watercolor Dots' stamp set with some Peacock Feathers Oxide after I misted the stamp with water I just took the vellum and dipped the corners into the watery ink.  While I left it to dry I stamped the rose from the Altenew 'Carved Rose' with Worn Lipstick Oxide.  I heat embossed this with some clear embossing powder.  I heat embossed it about three or four times to get a raised 'sticker' look to it which worked so cool with this stamp.  I followed the same procedure for the leaves using Tumbled Glass.  I cut a tag out of the rose and leaves (BTW this is bristol vellum as well).  Next I stamped the 'my friend' sentiment and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I did the same for the 'You will always be' sentiment as well.  I used some silver thread wound quite a few times for the tag and adhered it to the main panel. Also, I die cut the main panel with a dotted rectangle.  I mounted this to the pink card stock and then mounted the whole thing to a gray card base.
