Spritz the card again after applying the powders in order to create a greater dispersal of the pigments across the card.

Step 1

Cut a piece of watercolour card measuring 16.5 x 11.5cm: this will be the background piece. Spritz it with water and puff pixie powders in Lava Red, Peacock Green, Purple Violet and White Pearl in a random pattern. Allow to dry.

Step 2

Repeat this process on the remaining piece of watercolour card using Lava Rad and Rich Gold Pixie Powders. Allow to dry.

Step 3

Die-cut the base flower shapes from the red/gold piece. Die-cut the looped flowers and swirls from white cardstock scraps from your craft stash.

Step 4

Die-cut your sentiment from a scrap of black cardstock.

Step 5

Glue the background piece on to the card blank. Glue your sentiment towards the bottom right corner.

Step 6

Glue the layered flowers and swirls to the card front; two top right and one bottom left, embellish with pearl gems or 3D Accents.
