  3. Carefully press your Acrylic Block (using all the corners/edges) into each of the Classic Stampin’ Pads so that you have al 7 colors – you won’t need much.
  4. Using your damp Aqua Painter, color in the images as desired, cleaning brush tip between each color change. If you get too much water on your brush, simply use a paper towel to blot up any excess water from your paper.
  5. For this card, the trees & “grass” were done in Shaded Spruce, the sky was in Pool Party, the cabin was done in Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze & Crushed Curry; the fireplace was done in Cajun Craze & Crumb Cake.
  6. Color in Sign using Soft Suede ink & your Aqua Painter; fussy cut out.
  7. Layer the Shimmery White cardstock onto the Early Espresso mat and adhere to base card using Dimensionals. Adhere sign onto card, just above cabin, using Dimensionals to finish.
