1. A piece of vellum 4"X5" was used for the canvas.
2. The back was painted with a Niji waterbrush filled with Ranger Adirondack® Alcohol Blending Solution and Adirondack Ginger Alcohol Ink. (Label your waterbrush with a Black Sharpie and store it with the brush side up.)
3. When it dried I pounced up and down on it with a cotton ball slightly wet with the same Alcohol Blending solution added from the bottle.
4. Penny Black Love Blush stamp was inked with Encore Gold ink, stamped on the opposite side of the 'marbleized' vellum, and then heat embossed with Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder.
Let me just say this about that. I found it very difficult to heat emboss on vellum and have it not flake. I ended up using a **Marvy Uchida Liquid Gold Extra Fine pen for the places that flaked off and even went over a lot of the other that didn't.5. It was painted with a Niji waterbrush and Twinkling H2O's Sweet Alfalfa and Rose Petal.
6. It was trimmed down as shown.
1. A Martha Stewart Embossed Petals border punch was used for the edge on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth 80lb. Cover cardstock around the roses. It's hard to see the embossed flowers in the photo of the card, but here is what it looks like up close but with pearls, etc.:
2. The image was mounted in the center.
3. That was mounted on Anna Griffin Pink Paisley DP.
4. The corners were punched with an SU Ticket Corner Punch.
5. An SU Horizaonal Slot punch was used on each side of the image.

7. That was mounted on Bazzill Bling Blank Check cardstock.
8. The ribbon was attached to the back of the Bling cardstock.
9. It was mounted on 5.5"X8.5" folded Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Super Smooth 80lb. Cover cardstock.
1. The tag is from Spellbinders Tag Trio.
2. The words are from Impression Obsessions Clear Stamp Sets - Sentiments II stamped with Encore Gold ink and heat embossed with Ranger Princess Gold Embossing Powder.
1. A Martha Stewart bow was tied and mounted with a glue dot.
2. Mark Richards 2mm pearls from the Script Alphabet were used in the hole of the punched embossed flowers. 4mm pearls were used on the coners, 5mm pearls were used on the tag.
3. Martha Stewart's new 3-in-1 Butterfly Punch (the largest butterfly) was used on Anna Griffin Pink Paisley paper. Three 2mm pearls were used down the middle and it was mounted as shown.
4. The stick pin was done using a JoAnn Sew Essential Pearlized Leaf Straight Pin, (it is only found in their stores and not online), and Czech Pink Glass Heart and Pearlized beads. They were secured with a Brass (Gold) Clutch Pin.
I always finish off my cards with something done inside on the left-hand side and on the lower-left bottom side of the envelope.
