  1. Create a watercolor wash. Emboss with the Flowing Wreath 3D embossing folder. Use a white pigment pen to highlight the leaf veins. Cut the outer portion to create a frame.
  2. Stamp the Cartoon Tulips image on watercolor paper using Antique Linen distress ink. Do a color wash on the petals and leaves and outline the image with a white gel pen.
  3. Die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment 4 times. Adhere gold washi tape on the 5th before die cutting. Layer on top of each other with glue.
  4. Die cut the dotted border from the Mix and Match Frame die.
  5. Assemble the card.

This tulip outline set comes with layering stamps so that if you are not comfortable in watercoloring, you can easily stamp the layers! It’s also very easy to watercolor because the flowers and leaves have big spaces wherein you can play with blending colors.
