HCPC 3367 Vintage Life Background PreCut Set

Other: gold embossing powder, Versamark embossing ink, CTMH White Daisy Pigment ink, adhesive pearls, Webster’s Pages DP, LuminArte water color paints, gold lace

Stamp the Vintage Life Backgound stamp set on Kraft cardstock, using white ink. Allow to thoroughly dry (or use a heat gun to speed the process). Stamp the cross over the background using the embossing ink. Sprinkle with gold embossing powder and heat set. Stamp two more cross images one on watercolor paper, the other on the DP. Cut out the cross from the DP (just cutting the main cross image). Use dimensional dots to pop this up from the base. Finally, use water colors to paint the flower that is stamped on the watercolor paper. Cut this out, and use another dimensional dot to layer this up. The butterflies were cut from the DP and layered where the butterflies originally appeared on the designer paper.
