To color in this stamp I used distress crayons in the colors Seedless Preserves and Peeled Paint. I then spritzed water onto the stamp. Then I stamped it onto watercolor paper. Next, I mounted the watercolor paper onto Flaxen cardstock. And then I wrapped black and white bakers twine around it. After that I used 3M foam tape to place the piece onto the cardbase. Then I used Post-It tape to cover that piece up. Next I brought out gold paint, a toothbrush, and water bottle to flick the paint onto the cardbase. Finally, I stamped the sentiment and mounted it onto a purple scrap.
