Instructions: Cut a piece of decorative purple paper from the paper collection to use as a background cover for your 5" x 7" card base. Next choose a coordinating paper that has some fuchsia images printed on both sides and cut slightly smaller than the background piece. The last piece of paper you will need to locate is the pre printed card panel as shown. Trim off green edging to make the panel slightly smaller. Next mask off the area around the centre white space on the premade card panel with washi tape. Using permanent black ink, stamp the script stamp in the centre area of the card panel. Allow to dry. Next stamp the Fuchsia Clusters image to the top corner of the card, slightly off to of the side so that only part of the image appears to be printed onto the background. Repeat with the small fuchsia image from the Fuchsia Bouquet Cling Stamp Set. Allow to dry and then watercolor both images using distress markers and watercolor brush. Once all coloring has dried, distress all pieces using an ink distress tool and the various colored inks listed above, starting with your lighter colored inks and building in the darker shades where you would like the card to appear more aged. Using a distressing tool, rough up all the edges on each of the card pieces as much or as little as you like, even tear a few areas so the background papers have a chance to show through. Apply a dark colored brown ink onto all of the roughed up edges. Build card starting with the purple background paper, then the printed smaller image paper and lastly the premade card panel you have stamped and colored. Fussy cut the small sentiment box from the paper collection and stamp with your choice of sentiment from the collection. Adhere to card as shown. Wind your gold cording around the card front several times and tie in a knot in the front. Adhere your card front to the base. Apply stickles lightly to each of the stamped flower images and adhere rhinestones. You now have an antiqued, vintage style any occasion card ready to send out to that friend who loves all things aged and beautiful!
