Next I stamped a flower images from Lucky Tulip stamp set with VersaMark ink on some watercolor paper. Then I heat embossed a floral image using our Rose Gold Embossing Powder.  And then I started to color the images using watercolor paint. After that I fussy cut it and taped it down on the paper.

Next I stamped the label stamps from our Basic Labels stamp set in our Noir Dye Ink on separate cardstock. Then I fussy cut the labels. I adhered a strips of the Adhesive Foil Paper – Matte Gold onto the edges of the labels. Next I popped it up the edges of card base. Lastly, I added our Glass Slippers Sequins to finish off the card!

Let’s move on next card!
