Stamping with a die cut + video

I wanted to enter the Altenew challenge with a large flower stamp outline that I could colour in, but realised I didn't have any. Then I looked at my new Altenew layered floral cover die A and thought, hmmm... maybe I can stamp with it! So I tried it... and loved the result!
