February Stamp Club Card Part 1

Brick Wall Nature Walk


Run Very Vanilla card stock through the Big Shot with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder

Adhere Botanical Gazette DSP pieces to Chocolate Chip card stock.

Sponge edge of small Very Vanilla card stock with Chocolate Chip ink and then adhere to small Chocolate Chip card stock.  (You may sponge large piece of Very Vanilla c.s. if you wish.)

Colour directly on the Nature Walk Plant with Cherry  Cobbler and Old Olive markers.  Spritz or mist with water from about 6" away.  Stamp on the water colour paper.  Stamp one or two more times without reinking.  Let dry.  HERE is a tutorial on Misting with Markers.

Follow THIS tutorial on the BRICK WALL TECHNIQUETIP:  Draw your lines at the back of the piece of card stock or water colour paper that has your stamped image.  Then number each brick so that it doesn't become a puzzle to put together later. )

Use Tombo Liquid Glue to glue on the bricks to the Vanilla card stock.

Tape a strip of Crochet Ribbon around one end of main image.  Use THIS tutorial to tie your bow.  Attach bow with a Glue Dot.

Add dimensionals to back of the small Chocolate Chip card stock.

Complete card.
