Instructions: My finished card size is 6” x 6”. Cut a piece of the flower shaping paper 6” x 12” and score at 6”. Cover this base with a piece of the paper collection. The problem will be choosing which paper to use as it is such a beautiful collection.
Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink stamp all the elements of the card. I fussy cut around the brick wall and colored with Red Geranium and Fern Green. I think the green gives it a mossy look. Cut the filigree door out of white cardstock and add a bit of green to that as well. Cut the hinges out of the gold cardstock and glue to the door and door frame set aside to dry.
Color the lamp with the Dove Blender Pen and Tuxedo Black Ink. I rubbed off a lot of the color and came up with a pretty shade of gray. I used Dandelion to color the bulb. Add Glitter and set aside to dry.
Color the Topiary Pots and trees with Fern Green and Red Geranium. The trunk of the little trees are colored with Rich Cocoa. Layer all the pieces to the card front and allow to dry.
While the card dries let’s work on the flowers and leaves. Color with Red Geranium ink and shape. I layered two petals together and added Prills to the center and allowed to dry. As they are drying add the Crystal Clear and set these aside while we color the leaves with Leaf Green and Fern Green and the stalks are Rich Cocoa. I cut the leaves apart and added them and the flowers here and there on my card front. Just place them where you like and glue down. Allow the glue to dry and your card is finished!
