Start with a piece of Bristol smooth Cardstock sized to fit your stamp. Mine is 5x5. Use a stamp platform if you have one.
The misti helps make this whole card a lot easier, but can be done without.
Using distress stains gently tap onto stamp.
Going from lightest to darkest with your colors. For the stem and leaves I put crushed olive and then peeled paint.
Add your reds. I used candied apple as my base, with a little fired brick on top.
Use ground espresso for the center of the flower.
With the Misti you can stamp again if you need more color
Remove card from Misti, and use paintbrush and water to spread the color
Heat dry or air dry
Place back on misti
Using ground espresso distress ink, ink stamp
Stamp!! This is super pretty offset as well
Use Micro glaze to seal your image
Use vintage photo ink on the edges of the card, followed by ground espresso
Spritz water onto the card
I prefer the flicking method
Dry with heat tool
Distress the edges of paper
All finished!! I adhered mind to a card.
