Designer's Tip: Mask your work area with newsprint or plastic. Cut a piece of watercolor paper in half for two 9"x6" pieces. Place the card on the center of the paper and use stencil tape to tape off the edges to the card size. Tap the Alizarin Crimson bottle to add color powder across the center of the paper. Tap some Lemon Yellow across the same area. Hold the spritzer as high above your paper as you can and mist a couple of times. Now carefully mist once about 4" above the paper. Blot excess water with a paper towel as needed. Let dry. Trim the paper to 6 1/4"x4 3/4". Stamp the large botanical image on the upper left side of the paper with black ink. Stamp a butterfly angled on the right side, 2" from the top and 1/2" from the right side. Cover the card with black cardstock. Glue the watercolor paper centered on the card. Stamp "Happy Everything" on plain watercolor paper and trim to a rectangle. Mat on black with 1/16" borders. Foam tape near the bottom of the card as shown. Add Silver Border Dazzles across the bottom of the watercolor paper.
