Instructions: Create a 5" x 6.5" card base from white card stock. Trim a piece of plaid decorative paper from Beary Fun Retreat Paper Collection just smaller than the card base. Ink all edges with the soft brown colored ink and adhere to card base.
Trim a piece of water color paper just slightly smaller than the plaid decorative background. Using blue painters tape, mask off all four sides of the water color panel. Position panel in MISTI and arrange where you wish to have stamped images appear. Stamp images using a gray colored permanent ink. Double stamp to get a crisp clear impression. Clean stamps with paper towel and restamp over image using VersaMark clear ink.
Remove panel from MISTI and sprinkle image with clear embossing powder. Set with heat tool. Water color image with Ranger Distress Reinkers by placing a drop of each color onto acrylic stamp block. Using a small water color brush, pick up water and small amounts of color and apply layers to images. Using a sponge or distress tool, apply a dark blue around edges of top of sky and green around bottom of grass.
Add a light layer of brown to all edges of image for some extra definition. Peel away painters tape. Allow to dry thoroughly. Place image back into MISTI and add sentiment. Seal image with a spray sealer. Apply image panel to card base using dimensional foam tape.
