Live Love Metal Stencil by Louise Healy

  1. Fold a 6" x 9-1/2" piece of Coral cardstock in half to form an A6 card
  2. Cut a 4" x 5" piece of Watercolor paper, place drops of the acrylic paints down the center of the acrylic handle, spritz with water, use brayer to roll the color to the edges, be sure to keep the brayer aligned to keep the colors clean, spritz the paper with a little water then "stamp" the paints in the center of the Watercolor paper, carefully remove the acrylic handle
  3. If necessary, use a water brush or small paint brush and water to move the colors a little and blend, let paints dry thoroughly
  4. Tape the Live Love stencil to the Watercolor paper, lining up over the painted area, with removable tape
  5. Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Matte Black Embossing Paste over the design, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning later, let paste dry
  6. When the paste is dry, adhere the image to a 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" black mat
  7. Use foam tape to add the Live Love to the card front
