How To Guide - Step 1

Shake the Izink Pearly Shiny Yellow Spray from side to side, to activate the mica, then spray on to your craft/glass mat. Add a little water, then pick up the ink on to the white card (7 1/2 x 5"). 

Dry off the ink a little.

How To Guide - Step 2

Repeat step 1, with the Izink Shiny Vert D'Eau spray, and set to one side to dry. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Repeat step 1 again, but this time picking up the Vert D'Eau ink, on to your torn book page.

Dry it off.  

How To Guide - Step 4

Adhere the inked book page on to the right hand side of your dried, inked background. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Ink up the stamp from the Lush Leaves Creative Stamps, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp off the right hand edge of your background. 

Dry off the ink thoroughly, before proceeding to the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Apply the Izink Restless Rose Pastel Paste randomly through the Dots And Banners stencil, using a palette knife. The idea is to create a distressed, random look, to your artwork. 

Allow the paste to dry naturally, it doesn't take too long. But, if you're impatient like me, you can speed it up with a heat tool!! 

How To Guide - Step 7

Apply a little of the Izink Pigments to your craft/glass mat, add a little water, and paint your stamped image. You can use the Avalanche to create paler tones, or to add highlights. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Once the Pigments are completely dry, you can use a white gel pen to add accents, and highlights, to your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere on to the black card (7 3/4 x 5 1/4")

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere on to the front of your pink, top folding card blank. 

Set this to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Ink up your chosen word stamps, from the More Than Words Creative Stamps, with the Versafine, and stamp on to the scrap white card.

Cut them in to strips, and use a black pen to draw a decorative, wiggly frame, around them. 

How To Guide - Step 12

To finish, adhere your sentiments on to your card, where required.
