Instructions: Fold a 4" x 6" card base in half and ink the edges with a light inking of Pickled Raspberry ink. Cut a panel of patterned paper 3 3/4" x 5 3/4". Mount onto a second piece of patterned paper and trim to leave a very small border. Adhere to the card base. Stamp a dogwood branch to the left side of the card. This will become the template for the floral cluster. Colour image with Copics. This only needs to be a basic colour, as most of it will eventually be covered. Stamp and die cut dogwood petals on white cardstock. Ink the edges with pink and the centres with yellow ink using sponge daubers. Lightly mist with water then gently, but tightly scrunch, to create a wrinkled effect on the petals. Allow to dry before uncurling. Layer two petals together to form larger flower, then begin adhering over the stamped flowers. Stamp and die cut leaves and ink in green. Shape with a stylus, then tuck under the edges of the flowers. Fill in any space in the cluster with additional small flowers, without compromising the overall shape created by the stamped image. Tuck tied ribbon into the top of the cluster, and add green prills to the flower centres. Cut a sentiment tag from patterned paper and shape. Adhere to the bottom right of the card with extra flowers and leaves tucked into the bottom of the tag. Stamp and die cut a dove image and add some light blue ink to the tail using a water brush. Shape the dove and adhere above the sentiment with foam dots. Apply fine glitter to the small details of the printed background, the flower petals, the dove tail and the word “Spring” in the sentiment.
