Step 1: Starting with an A2 size piece of Wendy Vecchi MAKE ART Perfect White Cardstock, place that on on the MAKE ART Stay-tion and hold it down with a magnet. Ink up the “Hello” sentiment from the Letter It Greetings Stamp Set with Wendy Vecchi Archival Forget-Me-Not and Cactus Flower Ink. Ink the top half with Cactus Flower and the bottom half with Forget-Me-Not, slightly overlapping the colors in the middle to get a nice blend of colors. Stamp that in the center of the card.
Step 2: Mask off the “Hello” sentiment, then line up the leaf images from the, Flowers Say It All stamp from the Wendy Vecchi Stamp, Die & Stencil Set, slightly overlapping the masked sentiment. Stamp that with Ranger Clear Embossing Ink and Emboss it with Clear Embossing Powder using a heat tool.
Step 3: Use a small bowl or the lid of the Perfect Pearls for a paint dish. Add a little bit of Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls and water. Mix together and use the Tim Holtz Distress Water Brush to paint with the Perfect Pearls. Paint inside the embossed leaves. Add some dots of paint above the leaf images.
Step 4: Using the Jet Black Archival Ink, stamp the “friend” sentiment from the Letter It It's The Little Things Stamp Set over the “Hello” sentiment.
Step 5: Use the magnetic ruler on the MAKE ART Stay-tion and a Letter It Black Fineliner Pen to draw thin black lines across the design. Stopping and starting around the stamped images.
Step 6: Paint the edges of an A2 size card base with the Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls for a beautiful gold finish.
Step 7: Trim down the stamped panel slightly smaller than an A2 size card. Adhere the panel to the painted card base.
