How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up the Lush Leaves stamp, with the Izink brown Pigment ink.

Wipe over the white card (6 1/2 x 4 1/2"), with your anti static bag, before stamping your image. 

Apply the clear embossing powder over your stamped image, then having got your WOW heat tool good and hot, heat set the powder. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Randomly spray your artwork with the Izink Misty Morning and Butterscotch. 

Allow to dry naturally if possible, and once dry, buff your work, to remove any excess ink.  

How To Guide - Step 3

Splatter water over your artwork, wait a few seconds, before "lifting" the ink with a paper towel. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Apply water to your stamped image, wait a few seconds, then lift out the ink. Repeat this as many times as you wish, depending on how much ink you want to remove.

This is referred to as the "faux bleaching" technique. You can also use diluted household bleach, to give a stronger lift. 

Set this aside to dry off. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Ink up your chosen sentiment words, from the Thirsty Brush More Than Words Creative Stamps, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp on to the pink card you set aside earlier, when cutting down your pink, top folding card blank.

Cut each word out, straight...or wonky like me!! 

How To Guide - Step 6

Adhere these on to the black card (4 x 4"), and trim to create black mats for each word. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere your words on to your card, in the bottom right corner.

Adhere your artwork on to the black card (6 3/4 x 4 3/4") and then on to the front of your pink, top folding card blank.  

How To Guide - Step 8

To finish, add sequins to your artwork, as required.
