The flower image from the set "Embrace Life" was stamped in Black Staz-On Ink onto a 2-1/2" square piece of Watercolor Paper. The image was then watercolored using Aquapainters, the Groovy Guava and Ruby Red Classic Ink Pads. Once the image was completely dried it was cut out using a pair of CutterBee Scissors, and set aside. The focal panel is composed of the following cardstock: River Rock (3-5/8" X 3-1/8") and Ruby Red (3-1/2" X 3"). The bamboo image is also from the set "Embrace Life", and it was stamped in Ruby Red Classic Ink onto the center of the river cardstock. An oval was cut into the center of the ruby cardstock using the Coluzzle Cutting System. The oval window was covered with a strip of Clear Packaging Tape, and turned over to expose the sticky side of the tape through the window. Dazzling Diamond Glitter was sprinkled onto the exposed tape, and gently rubbed into it. The excess glitter was tapped off onto a scrap piece of cardstock, then carefully put back into its container. The ruby glitter window piece was then turned over glitter-side down, and SNAIL Adhesive was applied to the outer edges of the cardstock (over the back side of the tape). The glittered panel was attached to the river cardstock with the bamboo image showing through the window, then the focal panel was attached to the card base with adhesive. A Paper Piercer was used to make a hole in the center of the watercolored flower, then a Ruby Red Brad was added. The flower was popped off of the upper left corner of the focal panel using Dimensionals.
That's all there is to it! Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope to see you tomorrow with the final class card. I'm off to do a bunch of running around, so until later.......Hugs ~ Mercy
