How To Guide - Step 1

Lay the Rock On stencil on top of the white card (6 1/4 x 6 1/4"). 

Using your palette knife, apply the Izink Pearly Pastes through the stencil, to create your background. 

Allow the paste to dry, or you can speed it up with a heat gun. 

Clean your stencil straight away, or leave in a bowl of warm soapy water.

Use a black pen to draw a decorative frame around your background.

Ink up the Rock Birb, Guitar and Rock On sentiment, with the Onyx Black Versafine, and stamp on to the white card (6 x 4"). 

Dry off the ink, then cut them out.

Apply the Izink Pigments on to your craft or glass mat. Add a little water and use a paint brush to colour in the images. I used the Avalanche to make lighter shades of green and blue.

Once the Pigments are dry, use a white gel pen to add accents, and highlights, to your elements.
