How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up this cocktail glass stamp, with the Tuxedo Black Memento and stamp randomly on to the super smooth white card, cut to 6 1/2 x 4 1/2". Repeat several times to create a background, ensuring images are stamped off the edges of the card, as seen here. 

Blast the ink with your heat tool and set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up the lady stamp, with the Memento and stamp on to the super smooth white card, cut to 5 x 2". Cut her out. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Use your Gossip alcohol pens to colour in your stamped images.

TIP: Alcohol pens do bleed through the cardstock and can mark the surface below, so always pop a piece of card or copier paper underneath, to protect your work surfaces. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Wipe over the torn vellum with the anti-static bag, ink up the sentiment stamp with the WOW embossing ink and stamp to the left of the vellum panel. 

Sprinkle the Poppin Pink embossing powder over your stamped sentiment. Get your heat tool nice and hot, before heat setting the powder, ensuring you move it as soon as the powder starts to turns, to avoid warping or burning the vellum and powder. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Place the vellum strip across your background. Tuck the ends of the vellum over the sides of the card and secure on the reverse, with double sided adhesive tape, or a tape runner. 

How To Guide - Step 6
