Instructions

The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an slime line base in cream cardstock. So, to make the base use an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock and cut off 4 inches on the 11 inch side. So, now you have a 7″ x 8-1/2″. Place the paper in your Scor-Pal with 7″ at the top and scor down the middle at 3-1/2″.

For the other cuts you’ll need:

  • Watercolor Paper, cut to 3-1/2″ x 8-1/2″

Measure 1/2″ around the watercolor paper and draw a light line connecting all the points.

Using the largest brush in the set and a bit of blue watercolor (you can scribble the crayon on an acrylic block and spray with water), paint inside the rectangle you drew. Let dry and erase the lines.

Stamp the Mini Graceful Vine in Shady Lane ink in the bottom right. Stamp it again toward the middle and again in the top right. I’d suggest not doing what I did and instead stamp it in the top left just to change up the flow.

Stamp the Mini Finch on the vine in the lower left, the Big Robin in the middle, and the Mini Pretty Bird in the top branch. Use Fallen Leaves ink with all of them.

Stamp the sentiment, I would put the “Friends are the flowers in the garden of life” at the top above the middle branches and, “Live life in full bloom” at the bottom. I used Shady Lane ink, but you could use any ink that you like.

Stamp the Mini Fireworks Flowers in Twilight ink and again in Monarch ink. Do this on each of the vine sections. Stamp the Tiny Binky Flowers in Purple Delight ink. Finish out each vine section with the Mini Happy Sprig Large.

Color in the birds with a bit of watercolor and a small brush.

Add double sided tape to the back of the stamped panel and adhere to the card base.
