Tape stencil to card stock using removable tape. Apply matte black paste with palette knife. Remove stencil and place it, along with the palette knife in a pan of water. Set the card aside to dry. Wash and dry stencil.
Reposition the clean stencil over the black paste and tape all sides with removable tape. Apply crackle paste. Remove stencil; wash and dry it and the palette knife. Set the card aside to dry.
Crackles will appear as the paste dries. If you have a warming tray, electric skillet or griddle with a temperature control, this is the perfect time to use it to speed up the drying process for the crackle paste.
When the past is dry, reposition the clean stencil over the image and color with pigment ink and a stencil brush. Use the Picasso tool, or stencil shield, for color separation on the petals and for shading on the leaves.
Mat on coordinating card stock and you have a cheery spring card to send to a special someone.
