Designed By: Catherine Scanlon
Skill Level (1-5): 3
Time to Complete: 1 hour (allowing for drying time)


Step 1: Use clean water to create a very thin wash of Teal Semi-Gloss Acrylic Paint. Brush over the entire surface of the watercolor paper. The goal is to take the white of the paper away and create a nice base for the stenciled design. Let dry.

Step 2: When the watercolor paper is dry, use the Teal Semi-Gloss Acrylic Paint to stencil a random pattern with Adhesive Stencils from the Flower set. Let dry.

Step 3: Mix a little Pink Semi-Gloss Acrylic Paint with the Teal to create a light purple color, stencil a random flower pattern using the Adhesive Stencils over the teal design. Let dry.

Step 4:  Optional, create a white wash by mixing White Semi-Gloss Acrylic Paint with water to tone down the Teal and Purple Flowers and brush over the entire sheet of patterned paper you created. Let dry.

Step 5: Splatter gold paint over the entire paper.

Step 6: Trim the patterned paper to 4 ¾ x 6 ¾ and mat on Black Cardstock,  choose the part of the paper you like the most and reserve the rest.

Step 7: Choose 1 flower from the Adhesive Stencil Flower set and stencil a random pattern on a small piece of watercolor paper to use as the mat for the card sentiment. Let dry and brush a wash of Teal Semi-Gloss Acrylic Paint over the surface like you did in Step 1.

Step 8: Use Fussy Cutting scissors to cut out 2 purple flowers as shown in the example. Add a rhinestone to the center of each flower.

Step 9: Trim and mat for the sentiment and add the black and gold stickers. Mat on black cardstock.

Step 10: Add a piece of Gold Ribbon to the card and wrap the ends to the backside. To finish, add the sentiment and pop the flowers up with 3D Dots. Optional: Use a black pen and ruler to create a border around the sentiment block.#HL-195 Momenta Love Sticker
