METHOD:
1. Dilute the yellow and red gouache paints and create an ombré colour wash on watercolour paper, 10.5cm x 15cm. Let it dry. Use the same paints, but in a thicker, cream-like consistency, to apply wider stripes on top of the panel.

2. Add little dashes with pink paint. Allow to dry, then trim around the edges. Stamp flowers and leaves onto smooth, white card with the
VersaFine and Memento Luxe inks, then cut them out.

3. Stamp a sentiment and adhere all the elements onto the painted panel. Fix to a 10.5cm x 15cm side-opening white blank to finish.
