Wendy Vecchi Archivals and Liquid Pearls Country Flowers Card

Hello All! Yesterday, Wendy Vecchi released three new colors of Archival Ink from Ranger...Morning Glory, Rosey Posey, and Peachy Keen, plus a Rosey Posey Liquid Pearls! You all know how much I love Archivals, and I love these new bright Summer colors. They called for a flowery card, so I put together this super simple and fast card using Wendy's County Flowers Stencil, Stamp, and Die Set. Enjoy!
Cut Specialty Stamping Paper to 3.75 x 5.25 inches. Place the scalloped stencil from the Country Flowers Set in the center of the SSP and ink over the stencil with Morning Glory Archival Ink using an Ink Blending Tool, and covering all the paper. Lightly mist over paper with alcohol to create splotches. Dry with a heat tool. You always need to dry after inking anything on SSP as it stays wet a longer time than other papers. Using Rosey Posey Archival Ink, stamp two of the solid flower parts into the scalloped circle. Dry. Stamp the solid butterfly and centers of flowers with Peachy Keen Archival. Dry. Cover up the flowers with sticky note and then stamp one of the solid leaves with Leaf Green Archival. Dry. 
Stamp all the coordinating images over the solid parts using Black Soot Archival, using the sticky note to help you not overlap. Dry. Place the striped portion of the stencil at the bottom edge of the paper and ink in the stripes with Morning Glory Archival and an ink tool. Dry. Do the opposite side as well. Stamp the dotted grassy image randomly around the flowers in Leaf Green using sticky note to mask.

Place the striped stencil (clean it first) in between the blue stripes and ink in Glacier White Pigment Ink stripes. Dry. Clean the stencil and if need be go over the blue stripes again (I had to for a better clean look.).

Mount the card on more SSP cut slightly bigger with two sided tape, and then mount this onto a Kraft Cardstock base folded to 4 x 5.5 inches. Using a fine permanent pen, draw lines in the striped area and tiny circles on every other hump on the scalloped circle. Fill in the circles with Rosey Posey Liquid Pearls, and add dots of the Rosey Posey to the inside of the flowers as well as to the dots on the grass. Let dry.
