Designer Tip: With the fold on your left, cut your card to 3 "x5" and cover with Clear Glitter sheet. Stamp the rose and greeting onto watercolor paper with StazOn ink, then spritz the paper with water and keep damp while you are painting, that way the colors will flow together easily on your paper and give a beautiful watercolor wash. First paint the roses with a light blue wash, then add bluish/purple to the "set-in" areas of the rose, to give it depth. Add watery washes of paint around the outer edges of the roses, and the greeting. Stamp and paint the butterflies separately, then cut out and foam tape in place. Mat on navy suede paper with a 1/16" border, wrap with navy twine and glue onto your card.
