Instructions

Take a sheet of kraft card and cut to 10cm x 15.5cm. Stamp leaves and flowers from the Dreamees True Friends Stamp Set with Versamark Watermark Ink.

1

Once the entire page is stamped use clear embossing powder and heat set with your heat tool.

2

Take another sheet of kraft card 10cm x 15.5cm and heat emboss the sentiment as above.

3

Cut the heat embossed floral sheet and cut into pieces that are: 5.5cm x 6cm, 4cm x 10cm and 10.5cm x 4cm so they will fit around the sentiment.

4

Use pairs of distress oxide inks to go over each piece with a blending brush of your choice. I used: Aged Mahogany and Spiced Marmalade, Walnut Stain and Fired Brick and Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo.

5

Take some metallic gold paint and mix with water then spatter over the pieces. Dip the pieces in the remaining mixture to add further shimmer and activate the oxide inks.

6

Use double sided foam pads to adhere the pieces on to the card and add metallic gold Tonic Nuvo Drops to the centre of the flowers to finish.
