Thank You Bouquet

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge: #65 – sketch.

And here is my take:

As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use vellum. I decided to finally ink up a new-to-me set: So Very Grateful.

Since I wanted to keep this card SU only, I chose to watercolor the bouquet images.

Once I got everything done I realized that the sentiment just didn’t show up enough, so I decided to add another layer of vellum. I only needed to change the opacity right above the floral layer so I wrapped the additional vellum around that panel:

This way I achieved the desired opacity for the sentiment to be visible, but the blue of the card base still peeks through.
