How To Guide - Step 1

Place the Heart Splash stencil just off the left hand edge of the white card (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). 

Blend the Kitsch Flamingo Distress Ink through the stencil, fading the colour out towards the centre. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Splatter water droplets on to your inked heart, with a paint brush, wait a few seconds, then lift up the ink with a paper towel. 

Dry the ink naturally, or with a heat gun. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the floral stamp, from the Adventure Begins Stamp Collection, with the Faded Jeans Distress Oxide. 

Spritz the stamp with water, and stamp in the bottom right corner of your card. 

Spray the stamped image with water, and allow it to bleed, before drying with a heat gun. 

Apply the Faded Jeans and Kitsch Flamingo ink pads, on to a craft or glass mat. Spritz with water and paint your stamped flowers. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Place your circle mask on the edge of the inked heart, above your stamped floral image. 

You can hold it in place by popping some low adhesive tape, on the back. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Blend some of the Kitsch Flamingo around the circle, but keeping it within the inked heart frame panel. The ink needs to be darker around the edge of the circle mask, faing out as you move away from it. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Remove your circle mask to reveal your sun/moon, within your heart panel. 

Using the side of your blender brush/tool, drag some of the Kitsch Flamingo across your sun/moon, to create the illusion of whispy clouds floating past.

Ink up the branch stamp, from the Pencil Sketch Elements Stamp Collection, with the Faded Jeans Oxide, and stamp coming down from the top left corner of your artwork.

Set your artwork to one side.
