  1. Click here to download a copy of the design. Use paper with a medium weight and print the adult coloring design.

  2. First color the background. Use a soft pink pencil on certain areas and work dry on dry (use the pencils as is, do not wet the pencils or the paper), and then apply gilder’s paste with cotton ear buds to the background.

  3. Now color the hearts, using gilder’s paste and ear buds, and yellow ochre, carmine and cobalt pencils. Tip: Use an ear bud and Vaseline to blend and soften the colors, and afterward, blot the design with a piece of sugar paper.

  4. Color the letters with a dry cerise pencil.

  5. Finally, color the rose, stem and leaf, working wet on dry (slightly wet the tip of the pencil before coloring).

  6. Use the paintbrush and the gold dusting powder to add a gold shimmer to some areas of design, and then cut out the design.

  7. Score the 9" x 6" hot pink textured cardstock to create a card sized 4.4" x 6".

  8. With the fold at the left, glue the lace ribbon to the right of the card’s fold. Glue the light purple ribbon on top of the lace ribbon, and cut off any protruding edges.

  9. Glue the colored design to the front of the card, and finish it off by gluing the two rings to the card.
