How To Guide - Step 1

Place stencil 1 just off the right hand edge of your card blank.

Blend through with the Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Line up stencil 2, and blend with the Salvaged Patina Oxide. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Place stencil 3 in place, and blend the Peacock Feathers Oxide through it. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Line up stencil 4, and blend with the Villainous Potion Oxide. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Whilst the ink is still wet, spray water over it, and allow the ink to "bleed", as much or as little, as you want. Mop up any excess with a paper towel. 

NB: At this stage, you can now go back in with any of the stencils, and inks, and add more ink to redefine any areas that you want. Alternatively you can leave it as a loose, watercolour image. The choice is yours. 

Once you're happy with the final result, allow to dry naturally, if possible. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Add water to your Thirsty Brush Confetti Paint, and splatter it all over your artwork, as little, or as much as you want. I LOVE splats!!

Where possible, allow the Confetti Paint to dry naturally, as it gives a better, textured effect. 

How To Guide - Step 7

To finish, ink up the sentiment stamp, from Go After Your Dreams Lamination Stamp Collection, with the Smoky Gray Versafine, and stamp it bottom left, through your artwork.
