Step 1

Mist a piece of watercolor paper with Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Dandelion. Let dry. Place a stencil on the colored paper. Use VersaFine Clair in Summertime and a Sponge Dauber to stencil random patterns on the paper. Do not cover the entire area but leave areas unpatterned.

Step 2

Shape a chipboard grid by cutting out some parts with scissors. Color the plain chipboard with a Fabrico Pen in Real Black.

Step 3

Stamp patterns on the yellow stenciled paper, using the same orange ink. Glue the colored chipboard grid on the paper.

Step 4

Stamp flowers and leaves on pieces of colored cardstock. Stamp each flower twice; first on orange paper and then on yellow. Cut out. Layer each flower center on a base flower. Attach using 3-D foam stickers.

Step 5

Glue flowers and leaves on the card front. Write greeting word with foam letter stickers. Mat on dark brown cardstock and attach to card base.
