Quick Instructions for this Project
- First, we will cut our watercolor paper for stamping to 5 7/8″ x 4″. Next, let’s cut the gray card stock to 6″ x 4 1/8″. Laying the white card stock horizontally on the trimmer, cut it at 5 1/2″.Laying the purple card stock horizontally on the trimmer, cut it at 5 1/2″. Place one of these horizontally on the Scor-pal and score down the middle (look for the asterisk). Do the same to the other piece. Now you have two, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ (A2) card bases!
- Stamp the Jumbo Bird in brown. Ink up the Library (Birdhouse), then rub off, “Library” and rub off the leaves at the bottom of the post, now ink the leaves in green.
Stamp the sentiment near the library. Stamp the Vine in light and dark green. Stamp the flowers in a combination of pink, purple, and plum and the stamp the various leaf stamps in green.
- Color the Library in brown and green watercolor pencil, Create a path with brown watercolor pencil and color the sky with yellow and blue. Using a watercolor brush move the color around to create a smooth look. Color the bird in blue, red, and brown and then fill in with watercolor brush. Finish the card off with a little bit of glitter glue!
