Paint the girl with Spun Sugar and the guy with Hickory Smoke. I did two layers, making sure the first one is dry before adding the second. I let it dry for 15 minutes.
I used the third largest rectangle die for the wood paper and the second largest die for the pink glitter paper. I cut the foiled vellum to 4.25" by 5.5" to fit the card base.
Using the MISTI, I started with the tree bark stamp on the left and stamped it in Archival black. I stamped it twice to make the black really solid. The wood paper is actual wood veneer and quite absorbent. It die cuts and stamps beautifully. Next, I stamped the heart twice, followed by the Mr&Mrs and finished with the same tree bark stamp, but turned around.
After the second coat of paint on the die cut is dry, coat it with VersaMark ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder to give it a shiny finish.
Attach sequins to die cut using matte medium. I scoop a little glob onto my work surface and dip each sequin in, then place on my project. I laid all the sequins out on the skirt and then adhered them, but in hindsight, it really wasn't necessary. Set aside to dry for at least an hour. Once dry, add foam squares to the back, peel off the backing and attach to the card front. Our masterpiece is complete!
