Press the clear stamp images of the bird and words onto the acrylic block, cover it with the black ink and transfer it to the record below the Eiffel Tower.
  6. Use the pencil and the heart cookie cutter to trace six hearts onto the record. Use the paintbrush and the red, white, and pink paint to color the hearts. Allow to dry thoroughly.
