Here are the complete instructions:
Place stamped image on a light box, underneath the cardstock you will be coloring on. Watercolor with markers, using the light to see where to color as shown on the video.
Stamp Flourish Background on a Lilac Folded Card in Soft Lilac Shadow Ink.
Use a border punch on a strip of Cerulean Laying Paper, and adhere to card.
Add ribbon to top of Cerulean strip as shown.
Die cut a shape from Snow Layering Paper and stamp with Flourish Background. Attach to card.
Trim watercolored owl and adhere to card with dimensional tape.
