What You’ll Need To Make This Card

Spectrum Noir Colour Blend Pencils
Floral Symphony A6 Rubber Stamp
Neenah Card – Solar White
Memento Ink Pad – Gray Flannel
Spectrum Noir Paper Stumps
Spectrum Noir Blending Solution
Spectrum Noir Pencil Sharpener
Cardstock 5 ¾” x 11 ½” (to make card base)
Coloured card 4 ¼” x 4 ¼”

Fold the blank card and stamp the musical notes around the edge. Next stamp the flower image, then paint over this with drawing gum. When this is dry, stamp over the musical notes and your sentiment.

Select the coloured pencils you wish to use and colour your image.

When you are happy with your finished coloured image, take your paper stumps and dampen with a little blending solution. Using small circular movements blend your coloured image.

Ink around the edge of your finished coloured image. Mat and layer this on to your coloured card using Collall all purpose glue.

Now mount this to your card blank using the 3D Glue.
