Using Versamark ink and white embossing powder emboss background stamp onto white card stock, than cut around the image.
Add water to the little pots of Twinkling H2O’s and stir them with a brush to activate them. Paint over the Lace Background stamp with Twinkling H2O (Apple Blossom used here).
To prepare the flowers and leaf spray them generously with water till they are soaked. Paint each of the flowers with the colors you want to use. Make sure all petals are painted.
When you are finished painting the flowers and leaf, they will be flat. Don’t worry, once you dry them, they will perk up.
Dry the flowers and leaf with a heat gun. While drying them mold the flowers with your hand, so they won’t look flat, but more like a realistic flower. Add little pearls to some of them.
Spray one of the Petaloo Color Me Crazy butterflies with water and paint. African Jade, Guatemalan Green and Sunburst colors were used here.
Use your background, flowers and butterfly to create a card.
