How to make stamped flower cards
Step 1: Trim a piece of white card to measure 18x18cm and cover with a thin layer of PaperArtsy Honey Dew Fresco Finish paint, using a damp sponge wedge, to create the background.
Step 2: Dry the panel with a heat gun. Add green Granny Smith paint strips on the left and right edges then leave to dry. Use Cut-N-Dry foam and the Lin Brown stencil to create dots over your background, using Snowflake paint.
Step 3: Draw a jar onto the background, using the free template. Stamp a few grass stems onto the panel, using Bamboo Leaves Memento ink pad. Re-ink and stamp a few times to create depth.
Step 4: Sprinkle the stamped grass stems with some embossing powder and go over the image with a heat gun, moving it around constantly so the card doesn’t scorch.
Step 5: Stamp flowers and a butterfly onto white card, using a Versamark ink pad, then heat emboss the image using White Detail embossing powder.
Step 6: Paint the butterfly and flower heads using Matte Glaze and Snowflake paint. Colour in the image, using alcohol markers, then cut out the butterfly and flower heads and attach them to the panel.
Step 7: Stamp the sentiment onto a strip covered in Snowflake paint and attach to the panel. To finish, add doodles all around the edges and fix the panel to the card front.
