Vellum Embossed Inked Cards

I saw this gorgeous technique via a YouTube video... I believe the original creator of this card style was Mindy Eggen but I am not 100% sure of that. 

The backgrounds were created using Distress Oxide inks and then splattered with white craft paint. The floral image is from the Hello Lovely stamp set. I don't have the die so I embossed the image on vellum (once in silver and once in gold) and fussy cut around it. The embossed images were adhered to the inked backgrounds. The only things added were a few small gems in the same colour as the embossing and a sentiment strip. I did use a ruler and a black marker to draw lines around the outside of the card to help bring more focus to the stamped sentiments.
