Designer: Marcia Roullard


  1. Remove dust from the tile.
  2. Cut out the pattern of the cactus and the pot. Keep both the positive and negative of the cut-out.
  3. Trace around the cactus and the pot on the tile. Use CB-106 Script Liner to brush the cactus with SC-27 Sour Apple, two to three coats. Brush SC-74 Hot Tamale and SC-97 Cant-elope to the flowers, two coats. Brush the pot with SC-31 The Blues, two to three coats.
  4. Brush the cactus and the pot with water, stick on the paper cutout. Press with a paper towel.
  5. Use a plastic card to apply SC-31 The Blue to the top left and bottom left of the background. Apply SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and SC-97 Cant-elope to one side of the cactus. SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and SC-74 Hot Tamale to the left side. Apply 2 coats minimum, try not to muddy the colors, wipe off the card when changing color. Pick up two colors at the same time, the card will blend the colors, hold the card at a slight angle to the tile when applying the color.
  6. Remove the paper.
  7. Tap the Mini Fern Stamp with SC-31 The Blues with a sponge-on-a-stick, use the negative space from the cactus pattern to shield the background when stamping.

  9. Fire to cone 05/06.
