You’ll need:

  • Purple and card
  • Pink patterned paper
  • Acetate
  • Button
  • Washi tape
  • Black thread
1. Attach the template (available to download from issue 196’s templates) onto a 100mm square of acetate using pieces of washi or low-tack tape. Trace the template using a 0.3mm Pilot drawing pen. Leave to completely dry. Trace back over the same lines to darken. Leave to dry.
2. Turn the acetate over and attach to a piece of white card. Colour in the sections of the flowers and leaves using pink, purple, yellow and green markers. Leave the ink to dry, then add another layer of colour to each of the coloured sections. Leave to dry.
3. Once dry, remove the acetate panel from the white card. Turn the panel over and secure to the white card using the tape.Add dots using the gold and silver metallic markers to the petals and centres of the flowers, as shown. Leave to dry. 
4. Trace the frame template (available to download from issue 196’s templates) onto white card using a pencil. Colour the scalloped border with pink and yellow markers. Add the pink and green lines around the edge. Trace and colour the sentiment panel with markers.
5. Once dry, use a 0.3mm drawing pen to add the black lines and dots. Write the sentiment onto the panel. Use metallic markers to embellish the border and centres of the flowers. Colour a white button with a violet marker, to complement the design.
6. Cover a 147mm square base with purple paper then attach a smaller square on top. Trim a 95mm square from the centre of the frame panel then attach the acetate design to the reverse. Add to the base with foam pads. Add the sentiment and button, to finish.
