How To Guide - Step 1

Place the Stylized Circle stencil on to your white card (6 1/2 x 6 1/2").

Place your circle mask centrally, to the left of your circle aperture, as seen here. You can secure it in place with low tack tape, if required. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Blend your Oxides horizontally, within the circle stencil. 

Keep going back over each of the Oxides, until you're happy with the blend/effect. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Whilst the ink is wet, splatter water all over, wait a few seconds then "lift" out the water and ink, with a paper towel.  

How To Guide - Step 4

Remove the circle moon mask and lightly blend the Worn Lipstick within the moon, to take away the harsh white card. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Drag some of the Worn Lipstick across the moon, to give the effect of wispy clouds floating by! I use the edge of my blending tool to achieve this effect. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Splatter a few small droplets of water within the moon, then lift up the ink with your paper towel. 

Remove the Stylized Circle stencil and dry your artwork off thoroughly. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Ink up this stamp from the Every New Day Stamp Collection with the Onyx Black Versafine and stamp across your inked circle.

Tip: Think about the waterline in relation to the boat, and where you want the couple's image to sit, within the moon. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Pop the Stylized Circle stencil back in place.

Ink up the tree stamp, from the same collection, with the Versafine and stamp coming down from the top left. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Ink up the other tree stamp and stamp creeping in, from the right hand edge. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up this grasses stamp, from Your Only Limit Is You Stamp Collection, with the Versafine and stamp coming up from the bottom left.

How To Guide - Step 11

Carefully remove the Stylized Circle stencil.

Reink the grasses stamp and stamp to the bottom right of the card, so it blends in with the stamped grasses, as seen here. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Place the Enchanted Mandala stencil just peeking on to the top left corner of the card and blend with the Worn Lipstick Oxide.

Repeat in each of the corners.

Blend the ink lightly around all the corners and edges of the card, fading the ink out as you move inwards towards your artwork, as seen here.  

How To Guide - Step 13

Place the Stylized Circle stencil back in place, and use a black, fine line pen, to draw around random areas of the stencil, to accentuate its shape. 

How To Guide - Step 14

Ink up the sentiment from Your Only Limit Is You Stamp Collection, with the Versafine and stamp on to your artwork, where required. 

How To Guide - Step 15

Adhere your dried artwork on to the black card. 

How To Guide - Step 16

Adhere on to your white card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 17

To finish, use a white gel pen to add accents and highlights to your artwork.
