Step 1: Cut a 5 ½ inch square piece of Watercolor Paper. With the textured side facing you blend Garden Patina Archival Ink all over the Paper using a Mini Distress Tool, ensuring the entire surface is covered with ink.

Step 2: Add Dina Wakley Media White Acrylic Paint to your craft mat. Run the brayer through it back and forth until it is completely covered, then gently roll the brayer over the raised texture of the Watercolor Paper.

Step 8: Make sure the black ink is dry, using your Heat It tool if necessary. Place the matching Birthday Art stencil (which comes in the stamp set) over the flower and blend Carnation Archival Ink over it with a Mini Blending Tool.

Step 10: Cut around each of the colored flowers removing the bottom section as shown. For a professional finish use a black pen to color the edges of the Paper. Draw highlights on the flowers with the White Dylusions Paint Pen.

Step 13: Apply ribbons of Matte Distress Collage Medium using the fine tip on the 1fl. oz. bottle on and around the flowers as shown. Cover the wet Medium entirely with seed beads and leave to air dry completely.

To finish stick the embossed words onto the flowers as shown. Cut a 5 ¾ inch square piece of Black Cardstock and stitch a line around the edge (or draw lines with the White Paint Pen if you’d prefer). Mount the floral card onto the black card then onto a 6 inch white card blank.
