Dry off the ink. 


How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up the solid part of the stamp, from the Small Town Girl Lamination Stamp Collection, with the 2 pink Izink Pigment ink pads. 

Stamp just off the bottom left of your inky background. You can reink, and stamp again, until you are happy wih the intensity of the colours. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the detailed, coordinating stamp, with the Smoky Gray Versafine. Line it up, and stamp over your image. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Ink up the same stamp again, with the Versafine, and stamp it on to the copier paper, or masking sheet. 

Cut it out, to create your "mask". 

How To Guide - Step 5

Place the mask over the top of your stamped image, and secure in place with your bar magnet. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink up the solid stamp, from the Love Beyond Words Lamination Stamp Collection, with the same Izink Pigment Ink pads. 

Stamp across your background and mask, where required. I stamped mine roughly level with the lady's shoulders, but your skyline can be as high, or as low, as you wish.  

How To Guide - Step 7

Ink up the detailed stamp, with the Onyx Black Versafine, and stamp it in position, on top of your stamped image. If you are unsure how to line it up, the image on the packaging will help. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Carefully remove your mask, then dry off the ink. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Smoosh the Izink Cassis ink pad on to a craft or glass mat, add a little water and paint the lady's hair, lips, eyes, as required. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up the sentiment from the Love Beyond Words set, with the Onyx Black Versafine, and stamp where required. 

I chose to split my sentiment up, but the choice is yours. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Once the ink is dry, mat your artwork on to the black card.

Then mat this on to the front of your top folding, pink card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 12

To finish, use a white gel pen to add accents, and highlights, where required.
