In short, you stamp an image on white cardstock. I colored mine using watercolor pencils. Next you run a piece of wax paper through an embossing folder, then place it over the stamped cardstock, cover that with a piece of scrappaper above and below (to protect your iron from wax) and then iron over it using your hottest setting and no water in the iron. Discard the wax paper, then, rub an ink directly onto the cardstock. I used tumbled glass, first using a sponge tool, but at the end rubbing the ink pad directly on the cardstock. Quickly use a paper towel to remove any extra ink, and the pattern begins to pop out - one of those magic moments! I went back in and used some markers to bring my flower and leaves back out, as they were a bit muddied from the blue ink. The finished panel was cut with a nesties label die, framed in pale pink, and then centered over aqua paper embossed with the same folder, adding my sentiment and a pale pink ribbon.
This was fun, and I'll try it again! Thanks, Yvonne!
