Step 1: Stamp images from the Warm Wishes stamp set on Tim Holtz Distress® Watercolor Cardstock. Use Archival Ink in Jet Black and watercolor them using Wendy Vecchi Blendable Dye Inks. The colors used for this project are the following: Potting Soil, Watering Can, Garden Patina, Sunflower, Tiger Lily, Red Geranium, Carnation Red, Fern Green and Prickly Pear.
Once the images are dry, die cut them with the coordinating dies.
Step 2: Cut some Wendy Vecchi Perfect White Cardstock to 5x3.75". Create a spotlight by blending Wendy Vecchi Blendable Dye Inks in Tiger Lily and Sunflower. Use Distress® Blending Brushes for a softer result.
Step 3: Stamp your sentiment with Jet Black Archival Ink. For accurate postitioning, use the Perfect Stamp Positioner Set and the Perfect Stamp Block as follows.
Mount your sentiment stamp on the Perfect Stamp Block. Stamp the sentiment on the thin acrylic panel in the Perfect Stamp Positioner Set. Do not remove or reposition the stamp on your Perfect Stamp Block.
Step 4: Place your card front on the Wendy Vecchi Make Art Staytion and hold it in place with the magnets. Determine where you want your sentiment to be, using the acrylic panel with the stamped greeting as a guide. Use the L-shaped magnetic ruler in the Perfect Stamp Positioner Set and tuck it against the corner of your acrylic panel.
Step 5: Remove the acrylic panel. Grab your Perfect Stamp Block with your sentiment stamp still mounted and stamp your greeting. Use the L-shaped magnetic ruler as a guide for your stamping.
Step 6: Complete your sentiment and adhere the images so that the candles are aligned with the ink blended area on the card front.
Step 7: Mount the panel on a Vecchi Perfect Cardstock Grey card base. Embellish the card with Wendy Vecchi Liquid Pearls in the color Carnation Red. Use tools in the Perfect Stylus Set to get perfectly rounded dots every time.
