How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up the Tulip Hugs and a couple of the Garden Rocks, with the Tuxedo Black Memento. Stamp on to the super smooth white card.

Place a sheet of copy paper underneath, to protect your work surface from the alcohol ink, which will bleed through the card. 

Colour in your stamped images using your Gossip alcohol pens, then fussy cut. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Use a white gel pen to add accents and highlights, to your 3D elements. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Remove this decorative paper from the A5 Creative Paper Collection. Tear off 3 or 4 random strips and cut out one of the Butterfly's. 

TIP: If you want the paper Butterfly to be more substantial, tear off that area of the decorative paper, adhere to a piece of card, then cut it out. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Use your white gel pen to add decorative dots to the butterfly. Once the gel is dry, give the wings shape with your fingers. 

Pop the butterfly to one side. 


How To Guide - Step 5

Adhere the decorative paper strips to the left of your scalloped edge card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink up the accent, texture stamps, from all the Thirsty Brush sets, with the Memento and randomly stamp on to your card. 

How To Guide - Step 7

One at a time, spray the Golden Shimmer and Iced Teal Pearlywinks sprays on to your glass mat, then splatter over your background, as required. I like a lot of splats but the choice is yours!! 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere your Tulip Hugs on to your card, using wet glue for the stems and lower leaves and foam pads for the flower heads. This gives your artwork depth and dimension. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your Garden Rocks at the base of your Tulips, again using a combination of wet glue and foam pads. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up the sentiment stamp from the Every Flower set, with the Memento and stamp to the lower right of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Finish off by adhering your paper Butterfly just above the sentiment.
