How To Guide - Step 1

Tear this paper from the Imala Collage Collection paper pad, and cut down to 6 1/2 x 6 1/2". 

How To Guide - Step 2

Place the open Imala Amsterdam stencil, off the bottom, right hand side of the decorative paper, as shown here. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Blend the Villainous Potion Oxide through the stencil. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Move the stencil up, and in a slightly different position, above the first stencilled area, as shown here. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Now place the coordinating, detailed mask, over the top of the already inked area, so it covers it up. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Blend the Black Soot Oxide through the visible part of the stencil, ABOVE the previous stencilled area, so that when you remove both stencil and mask, this is the dimensional effect you get. 

Dry off the ink thoroughly. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Line the detailed mask back over the purple stencilled area only. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Use your palette knife to blend the Izink Glitter paste through the mask. 

Carefully remove the mask, putting it in a bowl of soapy water.

Allow the glitter paint to dry naturally if possible, but you can speed it up with a heat gun, if you're impatient like me! 

How To Guide - Step 9

Apply the Oxides to your glass or craft mat, add a little water, and paint the images on the decorative paper, as required. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Splatter the Oxides over your artwork, as required, then dry off the ink. I like lots of splats!! 

How To Guide - Step 11

Place the circle mask off the top left edge of your paper. I popped some low tack tape on the back of my mask, to secure it in place. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Blend the Villainous Potion Oxide around your mask, fading it out as you move away. 

Remove the mask, to reveal your moon/sun. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Using the side of your blending brush/tool, drag some of the Oxide across your moon, to give the effect of wispy clouds floating past. 

How To Guide - Step 14

Ink up the flock of birds stamps, from the Pencil Sketch Elements Stamp Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine.

Stamp near/on your moon. 

How To Guide - Step 15

Ink up the sentiment stamp, from My Sunshine Lamination Stamp Collection, with the Versafine, and stamp where required. 

How To Guide - Step 16

To finish, adhere your artwork on to the front of your card blank.
