Designer Tip: 1) Glue Vine Textured Paper on the surface of the chipboard letter. Turn the letter over onto your cutting mat and use your knife to carefully trim the excess paper evenly with the edges of the letter. Turn the letter right side up. 2) Moisten your fingers with the baby wipe (this helps the Inka Gold to go on smoothly and blend easily), then use your fingers to apply the Inka Gold colors to the raised design on the textured paper. I applied the turquoise and green yellow and allowed some blending of the colors, and left open areas for the orange. Clean your fingers with the baby wipe, then go back and apply the orange Inka Gold. Add turquoise to the edges, then set aside to dry. 3) Zot flowers near the center of the letter as shown. Apply Turquoise Inka Gold on the surface of the Words Foiled Fancies with your finger. Foam tape in place. Thread coral jute twine through the buttons to finish them and Zot in place. Tie a double bow with coral twine and Zot near the flowers and words. Zot a button on the center of the bow as shown.
