2018 Anniversary Mixed Bouquet

I decided to make this card after I read Melissa Phillips tips on Second Generation Stamping.  I used to stamp off a long time ago, and I don't know why I stopped. 

I agree with Melissa that you expand your colors just by stamping off.  Each of the two-step flowers and leaves is stamped with one color of ink.  The bottom layer is stamped off and the top layer is the pure color.  I really love the way they look.  The flower set is the new 2018 Anniversary Mixed Bouquet set.  The jar was die cut once in white and once in Vellum.  I colored the backside of the Vellum in Copics BG10 & BG11.....hoping to make it look like water.  I added a pretty little gingham collar to the jar using Tropical Teal ink that had been stamped off.  The background was done with the Super Gingham set.
