3.  Spray the tissue paper to continue to wet it.
4.  Lightly touch any air pockets with your finger so that the crepe paper will stick to the watercolor paper.
5. Gently peel away the crepe paper and let the watercolor paper dry. As the paper dries, some interesting patterns will continue to develop on the watercolor paper.

Instructions for Making the Salt Dough Embellishment:

1.  Mix the flour, water, salt and food coloring together in a bowl. Tip: The dough should not have a sticky consistency. If it sticks to the cookie cutter rather add a little bit more flour and mix thoroughly again.
2.  Place the silicone baking sheet onto the baking tray. Roll the dough out directly on the baking sheet to a thickness of 0.15” and cut out the circle with the cookie cutter.
3.   Remove excess dough and stamp image onto the dough circle.
4.   Bake at 150º Celsius (300º Fahrenheit) for one hour.
5. Allow to cool before using the colored felt-tip pens to add some detail to the embellishment.
