Instructions : This card utilizes two techniques from the SNS Tips & Techniques webpage.
1) Outline Stickers and Velvet Glitters
2) Watercoloring on Velvet Glitter

1. Create shaped card using Grand Nestabilities Labels 4 (makes an A7 size card). Then die cut the next two smaller sizes for the blue & green layers, and run through embossing folder for texture. Use the smallest die in the set for the white CS which has been covered with Super Adhesive Sheets (per directions on T&T page)
2. Remove protective cover from white panel, and set in open coffee filter, sticky side up. Spoon a little Cloud Nine glitter on top and lightly cover entire panel. Burnish with fingers or place the protective cover back on and press through that. Tap off excess.
3. Apply any outline style sticker on top of the velvet glitter.
4. Press firmly so sticker is firmly adhered.
5. Use regular markers, watercolor pencils or watercolor crayons to color. In this card Lyra watercolor crayons were used. I pulled the color directly off the crayon with the Dove Blender pen, and painted inside the sticker lines, on top of the glitter. Set white panel aside.
6. Die cut flourish and flowers as desired. On some of the flower petals, and all of the flourish, apply VersaMark ink and heat emboss with Moss Star EP. Allow to cool. With Dimensional Glue, apply thin lines of glue on top of the heat set EP, and sprinkle on Priceless Peacock glitter. Allow to dry thoroughly before adhering to card. Using tweezers, hold the brads by their prongs, heat the head, and quickly dip into EP. Repeat until desired effect is achieved. Let the brads cool a few seconds before putting them down.
7. Adhere white panel to blue and green panels. Attach the flowers and flourishes as desired. Then attach the set to the black card base.
