Ink the background stamp with Versamark, then with brown ink. Emboss with clear embossing powder and the heat gun. Color the image lightly with the watercolor crayons, starting with the roses. After coloring each area of the image, use a watercolor brush dipped in water to smooth the colors. Once the entire image is dry carefully cut it out - use a craft knife to cut out the inner spaces. Cut the patterned paper to 4" x 5 1/4", and distress the edges of the paper. Mount a strip of ribbon around the lower area of the patterned paper, and tie a green bow and attach it very near the right side of the patterned panel. Mount this on the front of the card. Stamp the sentiment in green on the vanilla paper and punch out with the circle punch. Cut and emboss a green scalloped circle. Mount the sentiment circle onto the green scalloped die cut. Using foam dots, mount the lattice on the patterned paper, followed by the sentiment.
