Shasta Flower Trio by Lyn Bernatovich


  1. Cut card base 4-1/4 x 11, score at 5-1/2.  Set aside.
  2. Cut a kraft panel larger than the stencil and place on a work surface.  Lay the stencil over the panel and tape down with removable tape on all four sides.  With the palette knife, scoop out embossing paste and spread along the edge of a paste spreader.  Starting at the top of the stencil, pull evenly and smoothly down the length of the stencil.  Remove tape from three sides.  Gently lift up the lower corner of the stencil up and off the paper taking the tape with it.  Set aside to dry.
  3. Lay the clean and dry stencil back over the pasted image and tape along the top edge.  Peel the protective top layer off of the paintstik and scribble onto a piece of wax paper.  Pick up color with a stencil brush and begin to swirl/rouge into the stencil.  Use the Picasso Tool to stay within specific areas, especially near the flower sections.
  4. Once the coloring is finished, lay the cross stitch screen over the stencil and tape at the top.  Pounce the stencil brush through the screen working in the green areas first.  Change stencil brushes and pounce over the flowers. Make sure the image is completely dry before trimming close to flower.  Edge with Vintage Photo to add depth.
  5. Cut a green panel 1/2" larger than the flower panel and affix to the green panel.
  6. Wrap a length of ribbon around the card front and tie in a bow.  Affix the flower panel near the left edge of the card front.
  7. Stamp sentiment in the lower right area of the flower.
