Hi everyone, Mou here with today's blog hop project.

You can recreate my card by following these steps:


1. Mount stamps to the clear handle. Ink stamps up with Stamper's Big Brush pen BLACK and stamp on cardstock.


2. Color the flower and stem with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Blend with Deluxe waterbrush. When dry cut around the outlines of the images with scissors.


3. Color 3" x 5" chipboard with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils # 133 & 143. Blend with Deluxe waterbrush. Let dry.


4. Dab embossing ink onto sections of the chipboard. Sprinkle Vinatge Mahogany Embossing Tinsel. Hold the chipboard up fall excess tinsel to fall off. Heat till the tinsel turns shiny. Repeat with Golden SAnd Embossing Powder. Apply the same technique to the center of the stamped flower and heat emboss.


5. Fold cardstock to make a 5.5" x 4.25" card. Color the card front with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Blend with Deluxe waterbrush.


6. Mount the chipboard to the card and attach the flower and sentiment as shown to finish.
