How To Guide - Step 1

Adhere low tack masking tape across the front of your landscape view, white card blank, about a 3rd of the way up.  

How To Guide - Step 2

Use the low tack tape to hold your circle mask in place, so its just overlapping the top edge of the masking tape. This will be your moon/sun, so it's up to you where you position it, and how visible you want your moon to be. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Blend the Izink dye inks within the top masked off panel, the darker colour being the furthest from your moon.

NB: You can use alternative colours, from your Izink ink collection, to create a summery sky, sunset, nightime sky.....whichever is your preference. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Splatter water over your inked background. Wait a few seconds for the ink to lift, before mopping up the excess water with a paper towel. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Lightly blend a little of the Izink Ocean within the moon, just to take away the harsh whiteness of the card.

How To Guide - Step 6

Using the side of your blending brush/tool, drag a little of the Ocean ink across your moon, to give the effect of floating, wispy clouds. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Ink up the floral image from the Create Together Beautiful Notes Stamp Set, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp it coming up from the masking tape, across your moon. NB: Be careful not to ink and stamp anything BELOW the masking tape. I always put a piece of copier paper over the area, so I don't accidently stamp there!

You can reink it, and stamp more to the left of your stamped image, if you want to extend your floral design. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Completely dry the ink, before carefully removing your masking tape. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Use a paint brush, water and a paper towel, to lift out the ink within your stamped image (faux bleach effect). This makes the image "pop" from your inked background. 

Tip: Instead of water you can use diluted, household bleach, for a more dramatic "lift". 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up the sentiment, from the All the Best Lamination Stamp Collection, with the Versafine, and stamp just under your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 11

To finish, adhere your dried artwork on to the front of your pink, landscape view card blank.
