Hi everyone, Mou here with my project for the hop:
To make this card, you'll need:

Others: Cardstock, book page, tissue, pencil, paint brush, adhesive, scissors
And now let me walk you through the steps:
Ink up a sunflower stamp with Black Stamper's Big Brush pen and stamp on cardstock. Cut the flower out. Also stamp the sentiment and cut it out with scissors.
Fold cardstock to make 5.5" x 4.25" card. On the card front, collage various pieces of scrap papers and tissue with Gel Medium. Let dry.
Apply a moderate coat of Gesso to tone down the different papers.
Rub Gelatos and blend them with very little water.
Color the cut out sunflower with watercolor pencils and Stamper's Big Brush pens.
Blend the colors with Glaze.
Add some circles with the Gold Metallic pen. Attach flower and sentiment to finish the card.
