Stampin Up! Painted Glass ~ Tip of the Week, Watercoloring with ink pads

Happy Fourth of July!

I hope you are spending your day with family and friends!  I have a quick tip for you today, to make this gorgeous birthday card!   

You can squeeze the your ink pads to put color in the lid and use an aqua painter or blender pen to color your images.  Isn't that easy and fun? 

Here is a visual for you!

Base: Shimmer White Cardstock, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
Layer 2: Lovely Lipstick, 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Layer 3: Shimmer White 5 x 3 3/4"
Layer 4: Starburst punched from the lovely lipstick layer 2
Layer 5: Two Die Cut shapes from the Painted Glass bundle
Layer 6: Lovely Lipstick 1/8" grosgrain. tied up in a bow
Layer 7: Shimmer White: Stamped sentiment using Tuxedo Memento Ink and punched with the 2" circle punch
Layer 8: Watercolored Rose, using lovely lipstick and Shaded Spruce Ink Pads and die cut with the Big Shot.

Here's another peek!
1. Stamp the Flower on scrap paper, and watercolor as shown above. Die cut with the big shot.  Add dimensionals to the back and set aside.
2. Adhere Layers 2-4 together.  Tie the ribbon around and make a bow.  
3. Finish adhering the layers using snail adhesive.  Use a dimensional to attach the watercolored flower.  Enjoy!
