Designed by: Keren Baker

Difficulty: Moderately Challenging


  • Grafix Clear Dura-Lar Film
  • PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylic paint in Aquamarine, Cerulean, Eggplant, Lavender, Mermaid, and Wisteria
  • Sugar Pea Designs Stamps – Everyday Sentiments
  • Altenew Stamps – Incredible
  • Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink
  • Tsukineko Jet Black Stazon
  • White Cardstock
  • Patterned Paper in Green

Steps to Make This:

  1. Cut a cardstock base measuring 12cm x 18cm and adhere a slightly smaller layer of green paper.
  2. Then use the Grafix Clear Dura-Lar Film, stamp some flowers using the stamp set using Stazon and let the ink dry.
  3. Next use the darkest colors of paint add flicks out from the center on the opposite side to which you stamped on and let the ink dry.
  4. Use the next lightest color (whether purple or blue paint) to do the same outward flicks. Let paint completely dry.
  5. Using the lightest color of paint, go over the entire flower still on the reverse. When the paint is dry and you turn the flower over, you should see a flower with dimension from the paint.
  6. Trim out the flowers and stamp and trim out the centers too.
  7. Fold the statements upwards and glue them to the center of the flowers.
  8. Add the flowers to the base adding the purple one with foam pads.
