Card Base:  Bermuda Bay 4-1/4 x 11, score at 5-1/2 – Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack 4 x 5-1/4.

Art Piece:  Watercolor paper 3-1/2 x 4-3/4, Basic Black Mat 3-5/8 x 4-7/8


  1. Stamp the image and the sentiment in StazOn Black ink on the watercolor paper.
  2. Squeeze your aqua painter until a drop of water comes out then use the brush tip to wet the flower.
  3. While the flower is wet, add the Bermuda Bay ink from the inkpad lid with your aqua painter.

TIP – I like to do one layer, with a little white showing, then a second layer in the shadow areas.

  1. Once the flower is dry, wet the leaves in the same manner and add the Cucumber Crush ink using the same technique.
  2. Let the art piece dry – or dry it with your heat tool.

TIP – if you dry it with the heat tool, it will curl, turn it over and heat the backside, it will flatten out again for you.

  1. Use the Fast Fuse Adhesive to attach the designer paper to the card front.
  2. Use the Fast Fuse Adhesive to attach the art piece to the mat and then to the card front to complete the card. 

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
