Project Instructions

Trace stencil using PITT® Artist Pens from the Essential PITT® Artist Pens 4-ct. black set onto small white cardstock. Color trace image using Art GRIP® Color Pencils. Use Cotton Candy Gelatos color to add color to corners by scribbling color onto white paper, then blending with your finger.

On card background, color using red shades of Gelatos Colors. Color directly onto paper and then blend with fingertip. Work in small sections and blend as you go. Start with a lighter color then add a darker color around the edges.

Ink stamp from the Gelatos Colors red set using Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Pink Madder. Color directly onto stamp. Repeatedly stamp background. Re-ink stamp as needed.

Add twine and sticker sentiment. Adhere all elements to card using double sided tape, glue dots and dimensional adhesive. Adhere butterfly and pearl.

Tips

Use a baby wipe to blend Gelatos Colors instead of your finger. It is less messy and the moisture from the wipe helps move the color more easily.
