How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up the Rickety House stamp with the Onyx Black Versafine and stamp just off the left edge of the white card, cut to 7 3/4 x 3 1/2". 

How To Guide - Step 2

Reink and stamp the house on to the masking sheet, or a piece of copier paper. Cut it out to create a "mask". 

How To Guide - Step 3

Place the mask over the stamped image and hold in place with your Eureka 101 magnet. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Using your blending tool and the orange Izink Pigment ink, create a vibrant sun rising up from the top of the house. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Blend the blue Izink Pigment ink around your house, covering all the white card. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Blend the Izink Reglisse Dye ink around the outer edges of the card, fading the colour, as you move inwards. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Place the centre of the spiderweb stencil in the top right corner of your artwork and blend the blue and orange pigment inks through the stencil, fading the colour, as you move inwards. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Carefully remove the mask, then dry off the inks with your heat tool, as pigment inks are slow drying. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Apply Villainous Potion Oxide to your craft mat, add a little water and using a paint brush, colour in selective areas of your Rickety house. I chose to colour in the beams, roof, door and trees, but the choice is yours. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up the flock of birds stamp, from Pencil Sketch Elements Stamp Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine and stamp above the house, so they appear to be flying across the sun. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Ink up the hanging branch stamp, from the same set, with the Versafine and stamp several times, coming in and down, from the top left corner of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Adhere your dried artwork on to the black card. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Finally, adhere on to the front of your white, DL card blank.
