INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. On a palette or plastic plate, add a small puddle of Primary Magenta and a small puddle of water. Dip a #8 flat brush into both and loosely paint the front of the card. (This will give it a watercolor look.)
  2. Tear scrapbook paper to size, allowing about a 1/2" perimeter. Use a 3/4" flat brush to adhere scrapbook paper to the card with Matte Medium.
  3. Use scissors to cut out Cupid figure from scrapbook paper and a 3/4" flat brush to adhere it to the card with Matte Medium.
  4. Place an arrow of your choice from the Americana Stencils Array of Arrows Stencil onto the card. With a cosmetic sponge, dab on Burnt Umber.
  5. Place the arrow stencil on the left side (refer to photo) and, with a cosmetic sponge, dab on Primary Magenta.
