Designer Tip: Combine Tattered Angels Gllimmer Mist with Gelatos for a shimmery watercolor look. I added gelatos plus glimmer mist, stamped on scrap paper, then added glimmer mist again so both the lime Gelato and the Moonlight Mist would show.
- Place your card with the fold at the top. Cut a 1/2" wide strip of striped paper and glue even with the top of the card front. Cut a 6 1/2"x4” piece from ferns/nest collage paper. Place the tall birdhouse stamp on your block and apply lime gelato to the stamp. Mist the stamp with Moonlight glimmer mist (2 sprays) and stamp once on scrap paper. Now mist one more time with the glimmer mist and stamp on the right side of the collage paper, 3/8” from the top.
- Place the small bird stamp on the block and add lime gelato. Mist with Moonlight glimmer mist (1 spray), then stamp as is on the collage paper near your birdhouse. Repeat this process for the words, on green textured paper. Use the template to trace an oval sign shape around the words, then cut it out. Apply lime gelato to the edges and use the baby wipe to smooth the color. Mat on blue textured paper with 1/16” borders. Trace and cut out a squared oval label B shape from brown textured paper. Color the edges with gelato as you did for the first shape. Foam tape the word plaque centered on the squared oval label and glue to the collage paper as shown, left of the stamped birdhouse.
- Glue the paper across the card front, 1/2" from the top. Cut a 7/8” wide strip of striped paper and glue across the card even with the bottom. Tie an olive crepe ribbon bow and Zot near the words as shown. Mist the entire card front with Moonlight glimmer mist.
- Cut a 4 1/2"x4” collage paper. Mist lightly with glimmer mist and glue to the inside, 1/2" from the right side and even with the bottom. Cut a 1”x4” strip from the squares collage paper, mist lightly with glimmer mist and glue even with the left side of the paper. Print the tag 2 3/8”x3” and glue to the collage paper. Stamp the words as you did in step #2 onto green textured paper, then trace and cut out the shape and mat on blue also. Glue to the tag as shown. Mist the tag and words lightly with Glimmer Mist, then glue to the inside. Zot knotted ribbon as shown.
